Dolac Airport

Dolac Airport (Serbian: Аеродром Долац, Aerodrom Dolac) (IATA: IVG, ICAO: LYBR) is an airport located near Berane, Montenegro.Berane was known as Ivangrad from July 1949 to March 1992, hence the IATA code IVG.

It is one of the four Montenegrin airports to feature paved runway and one of three Montenegrin airports to have terminal building. Berane Airport was used for regular airline traffic during the SFRY era, but has since fell into disuse. Today is used mostly by general aviation. There is an ongoing debate on whether Berane Airport should be invested in and possibly revitalized as an international airport. Berane city officials, as well as general public in north eastern Montenegro favours the reconstruction, while government authorities question the project’s viability.

History

On July 21, 1961, the Belgrade-Ivangrad tourist line to the nearby Bjelasica mountain was opened by JAT Yugoslav Airlines with anDouglas DC-3 airliner and flights in this type of aircraft with brief interruptions have been undertaken up to 1971 year. In the period from 1973 to 1974 the JNA carried out a full reconstruction and construction of asphalt-concrete runway. The airport is officially included in the regular transport on May 6, 1975 when he was re-opened line to Belgrade on the Fokker F227B aircraft of Zagreb-based Croatianairline Pan Adria. It was for all a great experience and in a way a symbol of prestige in these areas. However, Pan Adria at the end of 1976 declared bankruptcy and thus the traffic from this airport fell dramatically. An attempt during the early 1980s to establish lines with Slovenian Inex-Adria Airways ended in a failure; air carrier terms were too binding for the city economy and management did not support the initiative. Several promotional flights were made with the Dash 7, serving as the airport’s last attempt for regular traffic. The airport now serves general aviation, Aeroclub Ivangrad maintaining a hub. The Vojna Vazduhoplovna Gimnazija (Military Aeronautic Gymnasium) cadets from Mostar, Bosnia & Herzegovina historically served here.
