U.S. and Montenegro Reach Open-Skies Agreement

The United States and Montenegro have concluded an Open-Skies aviation agreement that will liberalize air services for the carriers of both countries. 

“By agreeing on an open market for aviation services now, we are setting the stage for travel and trade between the United States and Montenegro to develop in the future,” said U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood

This is the first aviation agreement between Montenegro and the United States. Previously, air rights between the two countries were governed by an agreement between the United States and Yugoslavia. There currently are no direct flights between the two countries.  

Under the Open-Skies agreement, the airlines of both countries will be able to fly to, from and beyond the other’s territory, without restriction on how often carriers fly, the kind of aircraft they use and the prices they charge. The agreement makes Montenegro the 105th U.S. Open-Skies partner.
