Berane Airport to get €75 million overhaul

Work on the overhaul of the derelict Berane Airport in northeastern Montenegro is expected to begin at the end of the year. Germany’s Elite Private Jet Service and US-based Future World Technologies have signed a Memorandum of Cooperation with the Montenegrin government to invest 75 million euros to overhaul the facility. “We expect to sign a Public Private Partnership Agreement in November, or in December 2023 at the latest, and then we can start work on the airport”, the CEO of Elite Private Jet Service, Maik Steinmuller, said. Berane Airport is one of four Montenegrin airports to feature a paved runway and one of three airports in the country to have a terminal building, albeit rundown. Known as Ivangrad until the collapse of the former Yugoslavia, the airport was served by JAT Yugoslav Airlines as well as Pan Adria until the mid-1970s, after which Inex Adria Airways attempted to maintain scheduled services although its terms and conditions were too costly for local authorities. The airport fell into disuse following the disintegration of Yugoslavia.
