Montenegro bans flights from Italy


Montenegro banned all flights from Northern Italy into its two airports, Podgorica and Tivat, from today through to April. Let’s take a look at what impact this will have.

Local media reports that the Montenegrin Ministry of Health has issued a ban for all travel between Montenegro and Northern Italy, and vice versa. The directorate for public health within the Ministry of Health provided the following statement (translated):

“Due to the current epidemiological situation taking place in the North of Italy, the Ministry of Health has, upon recommendation from the Institute for public health, issued a directive about a temporary suspension of travel to and from Montenegro to the North of Italy.”

“This directive is for the purpose of containing the inflow of contagious diseases into Montenegro.”
