All flights to Tivat cancelled - the collapse of Montenegrin tourism is imminent
Russia's national airline Aeroflot has announced that it will completely cancel regular traffic on its routes from Moscow to Tivat this yearSource: Vecernje novosti
These are flights that have not been operating since mid-March, when the National Coordination Body for Infectious Diseases introduced a temporary ban on flights at airports in Montenegro due to the outbreak of the coronavirus, Vecernje Novosti writes.
This decision of the Russian airline represents a strong blow to the stumbled Montenegrin economy, especially tourism.
The tourist workers hoped for Russian guests who would fill the empty Montenegrin coast, and to a small extent improve the catastrophic situation, "Novosti" reports.
It is uncertain whether Aeroflot planes will fly on the Moscow-Tivat route again in the spring of next year due to (un)profitability, turning to "long lines" to destinations that guarantee them profit instead.
