Tivat Airport is the busier of the two international airports in Montenegro. It serves the coastal area of the country. The airport seems to have two terminals of which I only saw one. The airport caters mostly for charter flights from European countries as well as Russia and Israel. On arrival, all passengers can make their way to the terminal. In Tivat, no buses are used. The baggage claim went pretty quickly, but they do not adhere to the priority labeling on the baggage. Within 5 minutes after leaving the aeroplane, I was outside. A week later, I checked in early for my Lufthansa flight to Munich, so there was no crowd at the check-in counter and at the security and passport control either. At check-in, I was misinformed about the possibility of using the airport lounge. It proved that Lufthansa – as one of the few airlines serving Tivat Aiport – has no contract with the lounge. The things you can do in the waiting area are very limited. There is one large duty-free shop in the departure hall but no café or snack bar where people can buy some food or refreshments, which is a real shame. However, I later noticed that some fellow passengers had gone through security control with their drinks, which means Montenegro’s authorities do not stop you from taking drinks from outside on board. Good to know for the next time! Boarding went swiftly and again all passengers were asked to walk the short way to the aeroplane.
