History

The airport in Tivat was opened on May 30, 1957, as a small airport with a single grass runway (1200 m x 80 m) a small apron (30 m x 30 m) and a terminal building complete with control tower. From 1957 to 1968, activity at the airport consisted mostly of domesticpassenger traffic to Belgrade, Zagreb and Skopje, with JAT Douglas DC-3 and Ilyushin Il-14 aircraft.

From 1968 to 1971, the airport underwent expansion and modernization. It was reopened on September 25, 1971, with an asphaltrunway (2500 m x 45 m), larger apron (450 m x 70 m), extended taxiways, and completely new passenger terminal and control tower. After the 1979 earthquake, the airport was once again refurbished. Notably, the apron was expanded (460 m x 91,5 m) and taxiways widened, so the airport could handle wide body aircraft.

On April 23, 2003, the ownership of the airport was transferred from Jat Airways to Airports of Montenegro Public Company, owned byGovernment of Montenegro. Since then, the airport was once again modernized and refurbished, with reconstructed passenger terminal opening on June 03, 2006. In October 2007, South Korea made a government donation valued at $1 million for a new airport equipment ranging from cargo-loaders to flight information display system. Further reforms came in 2008 when several old types of passenger aircraft such as the Ilyushin Il-86 were permanently banned from flying to Tivat and subsequently redirected to Podgorica Airport due tonoise abatement.

However, as passenger traffic in the mid-2010s approaches the one-million mark, and strong growth continues, the passenger terminal is a bottleneck in peak summer months. Thus, a new passenger terminal is planned at Tivat Airport in the near future, along with further expansion of airport facilities.
