The video shows LOC approach, landing and taxi of a heavy business jet Challenger 604 on runway 32 of Tivat Airport (IATA: TIV, ICAO: LYTV). It is an international airport serving the Montenegrin coastal town of Tivat and the surrounding region.
The airport is situated 3 km (1.9 mi) south of the centre of Tivat, with the runway aligned with the Tivat Field (Montenegrin: Tivatsko polje).
It is the busiest one of two international airports in Montenegro, the other being Podgorica Airport. Traffic at the airport follows the highly seasonal nature of the tourism industry in coastal Montenegro, with 80% of the total volume of passengers being handled during the peak season (June-August).
The sole runway of the airport ends just 88 m from the coastline of the Bay of Kotor. The airport is assigned 4D classification by ICAO, airspace class D, and is noted for its challenging approach and landing procedures. Approach and landing procedures are demanding because of the hilly terrain and strong crosswinds. Runway 32 approach implies descent into the valley of Tivatsko polje, and a 20° turn for runway alignment just before landing. Runway 14 approach is even more challenging, because of the circle to land maneuver executed in the dramatic scenery surrounding the Bay of Kotor. It's known among the pilots as the European KaiTak because of its tricky approach and landing procedures.Passengers are awarded spectacular views of the bay, the surrounding mountains and a low flyby over Porto Montenegro luxury yacht marina.
Year-round services from the airport include Belgrade and Moscow, however, more than 80% of the traffic is concentrated in the summer period, with the introduction of seasonal and charter flights. With the opening of Porto Montenegro and introduction of other high end tourist services, the airport increasingly caters to business jets.
