Low cost carrier and Ryanair subsidiary Laudamotion is considering expanding its presence in Montenegro following the launch of its new service between Stuttgart and Podgorica on April 2, 2019. The General Manager of operator Airports of Montenegro, Danilo Orlandi?, said, "I am delighted that we have started cooperation with an airline such as Laudamotion. I am certain that the new route from Stuttgart will be a success, considering the increased interest for Montenegro from the German market. We have discussed the introduction of other routes as well and I am hopeful that we will successfully complete those talks". He added, "Both sides have agreed to meet in Podgorica by the end of the year where we will hopefully expand our cooperation then". The Stuttgart - Podgorica service will be maintained twice per week with an Airbus A319 aircraft.
