Reviews – What People Are Saying
Based on 113 Podgorica Airport reviews on Google, Podgorica Airport garnered a 3.7-star out of 5 rating. The most recent reviews were neutral: “Infrastructures are quite new and recently renovated. However, the Wi-Fi connection is really unacceptable for an airport (very frequent disconnections and super slow speed). Moreover, there are just two places to eat and drink (one in the inside and one in the outside area) with a very limited food selection.” Other Podgorica Airport reviews say that their customs and check in were fast because of the airport’s “small” size, though others comment on the unpleasantness of their staff and the pricey fare inside.
The “small” and “modern” Podgorica Airport’s composed of a single terminal where among the services are free WiFi. Other services at Podgorica Airport are ATMs, baby-care facilities, car rental services Avis, Europcar, Hertz, InMontenegro Rent-A-Car, and Sixt, currency exchanges, medical services at the airport clinic, and an information desk located at landside between the check-in hall and departures.
Before security, travellers can shop at Podgorica Airport’s convenience stores and once they pass security, they can check out the airport’s Duty Free. TGD only has Caffe Nero, which is open according to the flight schedule.

I think Podgorica Airport is worth using, especially since they’re one of the major Montenegrin airports. Their problems – from customer service to the prices – can be minor, though they’re very efficient for a small airport.
