Podgorica, Montenegro (10 June 2019) – Prime Minister Duško Marković hosted earlier today representatives of EasyJet, EasyJet Holidays and Karisma Hotels&Resorts. The meeting noted that Montenegro is an attractive tourist destination and has enormous potential for further development and growth, which is a great opportunity for airline companies such as EasyJet.

"The Government is strongly committed to the development of tourism, but also to improving the overall infrastructure as a key precondition for further progress of this branch of economy," said PM Marković.

He recalled plans for valorisation of airports in Podgorica and Tivat, which is crucial for further development of tourism, given that Montenegro is mainly a flight destination.

Prime Minister Marković pointed out that the Government was open to a strategic partnership with EasyJet, which, according to Chief Executive Officer of EasyJet Johan Lundgren, is interested in long-term investments. They, through EasyJet Holidays, are interested in offering their customers a unique holiday offer in Montenegro, and they are partnering with Karisma Hotels&Resorts, which has a hotel complex in Ulcinj.

EasyJet is considered one of the best low-cost companies. In Europe it is the second largest airline with over 1,000 routes and, according to company management, exceptional operation and low operating costs.

So far, EasyJet has carried about 60,000 tourists on flights from London and Manchester to Tivat and flights from Geneva. They believe that the potentials of Montenegro, and especially its position in the region, give the conditions for further long-term development and increase in the number of tourists.
