Tivat Airport has had a climb in its development until the catastrophic earthquake in 1979 when it was necessary to repair and modernize the Airport. In addition to the existing terminal building, with the area of 680m² , another pavilion needed to be built for the needs of international traffic, the runway needed to be covered with new asphalt surface, and the apron needed to be increased. Handling of wide-body aircraft was made possible by adding three parking positions, from 70m to 91,5m, and expanding connector “A“ from 20m to 25m. The Airport reached its maximum in 1987 in the former SFRY.
The Seminars of Acrobatic Flying for future flight teachers were organized in Tivat yearly, usually in December, from 1970 to 1979.
