Following the recent addition of a 250m-superyacht berth at its marina facility in Tivat, Porto Montenegro has shared further news of new UK transport routes to Tivat, making it easier for UK travelers to visit the port during the high season.
Leading airline, easyJet has announced two new routes from London Gatwick and Manchester Airport direct to Tivat, Montenegro. The new flights will commence this spring and will operate on a weekly basis.
Danilo Kalezic, PR manager at Porto Montenegro said, "We are delighted with the news of easyJet’s new service to Montenegro. The new flights reaffirm that Montenegro is an increasingly popular destination, not only during summer months, but also in the shoulder season.
"UK travelers will now have a much easier access to Montenegro and an opportunity to enjoy all that Porto Montenegro has to offer, including sailing experiences in Boka Bay and a year-round calendar of leading international superyacht events, art exhibitions and social soirees."
Tickets are already available for sale at www.easyjet.com, and will operate twice a week from London between June and October, and twice a week from Manchester between March and October.
Montenegro will become easyJet’s 32nd country in its network when the service commences, and expects to carry over 19,000 passengers in the first summer of operation from London alone.
Neil Slaven, commercial manager at easyJet said, “A few months ago, we were delighted to announce that we would be adding a new country to our network, exclusively available for passengers travelling from Manchester Airport.
“We expected that this new route would not take long to become a firm favourite as an easy and affordable summer destination for our customers, and it has proved to be so successful that we believe there is a real demand for this flight from London Gatwick to Tivat.
“With its vibrant coastline littered with beaches, Montenegro is truly up and coming destination which will provide more than a match for the long-established Med resorts.”
EasyJet’s network in Southeast Europe already includes Croatia, Serbia, Kosovo, Bulgaria and Slovenia.
