PODGORICA (Montenegro), September 4 (SeeNews) - France's Aeroports de Paris (AdP) and Airbus are interested in a project for the launch of night-time flights at Montenegro's Tivat airport, the CEO of state-owned airport operator Aerodromi Crne Gore has said.

Aerodromi Crne Gore plans to launch talks with the two companies on the project, Danilo Orlandic said in a video file posted on the website of public broadcaster RTCG on Tuesday. 

"We have two very serious companies that are interested in the execution of the project and I believe that in the coming days we will have a decision on the project," Orlandic said. 

The government had previously launched a tender for picking a partner in a project for the launch of night-time flights at Tivat but terminated it due to legal irregularities, he added.

In April, Aerodromi Crne Gore said Montenegro's two international airports, in Podgorica and Tivat, are expected to break their annual passenger traffic record this year. The number of passengers expected to be handled at the two airports in 2019 totals 2.6 million, according to data from tour operators, Aerodromi Crne Gore said back then.
