Tivat Airport Closed Due To Non Payed Bill!?!

Fri Nov 16, 2001 10:27 pm

Dear friends,

you have to read this. I know that many of you do not even know where Tivat is, but this is really like in the film. Tivat and Podgorica are the two civil Montenegreenian Airports, owned by JAT when Jugoslavia existed. Now they are on Montenegro soil, owned by Serbian JAT which tooks all the money for them and not paying nothing. Well yesterday a Tivat Civil Airport was closed to traffic due to the non payed bills, I didn't beleived to my mother who told me that but I have take a look on the net and I have seen that is true. The company that own the airport (JAT) owe 65.000 Dm (some 35.000 Euro) to the company of electricity, and due to this thing the airport closed and the pax were diverted to Podgorica?!?! Can you beleive this? I have never hear such a thing, but in Balkans this things happen.
