Air Montenegro flights to France – the airline initially planned to introduce Lyon to its network for a limited time between September and October of last year, however, it suspended ticket sales several weeks before the route’s launch. This summer will also see Air Serbia introduce operations to Lyon. The carrier has said the new route will offer “seamless connections to cities such as Podgorica and Tivat”.

The Montenegrin carrier plans to grow its fleet this summer by up to two aircraft. The Montenegrin government has confirmed plans it will acquire an Embraer E195 aircraft for the state carrier. The jet, registered 40-AOC, is owned by the Brazilian BNDS bank and was previously operated by Montenegro Airlines.

The aircraft has been grounded since December 26, 2020. Initially, Air Montenegro was to acquire the jet itself, however, informed the state last December it did not have sufficient finances to do so. Air Montenegro also plans to dry lease a larger jet, from either the Airbus A320-family or the Boeing 737 family this April, at the earliest, for a period of between three and eight years. The carrier currently boasts a fleet of two E195s.
