According to the Minister of Economy and Sustainable Development Natia Turnava, Wizz Air will resume flights from Kutaisi Airport at the end of March. The airline will operate 45 flights a week to 20 destinations.
"As you know, from February 1, according to the decision of the Interagency Coordination Council, we have lifted all restrictions on international flights, in particular on regular flights. Today we have the following picture: Ukraine International Airlines has resumed flights to Georgia since February with 2 frequencies per week, Fly Dubai with 4 frequencies per week, Air Arabia with 2 frequencies per week, and Buta Airways will be added in mid-March, this is the Baku-Tbilisi-Baku flight 3 times a week, it is low-budget in addition to Air Astana and Fly Aristan. As a result of the lifting of flight restrictions, some airlines have increased the frequency of flights, such as Turkish Airlines, which operated flights 3 times a week and currently operates 2 flights a day. Pegasus operated flights only twice a week and currently flies daily. Qatar Airways also switched to daily flights 4 times a week.
Wizz Air which is always of great interest, will resume flights from Kutaisi International Airport from the end of March and according to the information available at the moment, will operate flights to 20 destinations, with 45 flights per week. From the end of March, the new airline Wizz Air Abu Dhabi will start operating on the Georgian air market and will launch flights to Abu Dhabi-Kutaisi-Abu Dhabi twice a week. Overall we have the following picture that as of today, regular passenger flights during March will be operated by about 70 flights a week by different airlines. According to applications received today, in summer it will increase to 200 flights per week, while even in August last year we had 10-12 frequencies, meaning that number of weekly flights will increase 7 times a week", - Turnava said.
