Very few facilities eg shops or cafes. There is no bus service at the airport as the taxi drivers union has prevented the establishment of any services
I tried to use the bus service to Budva by walking left out of the airport along the main road for about 300 metres to an orange bus shelter next to a petrol station. Waited an hour and 15 minutes but no bus so had to take a red taxi costing 16 euros. The taxi drivers at the airport will harass you and charge 20 euros to Budva.
