At the Podgorica airport, a military exercise involving a hijacking of an aircraft showed that Montenegrin institutions are ready to react promptly to incidents. This was the most complex and demanding exercise in the illegal interference of civil aviation in which a large number of participants and competent state authorities were engaged. The aim of the exercise is to train and verify the system of notification and coordination of activities between the competent authorities and institutions, to check the quality of the adopted legislation and plans and procedures in case of hijack. The president of the National Committee for Civil Aviation Security, Dragan Đurović, assessed that the exercise was successful and showed a high level of compliance of all entities that are activated in such crisis situations. He stated that this is another confirmation of the high standards of civil aviation safety that the European Commission has confirmed to be in line with the standards of EU member states.
