Georgia won't host international flights until October 1

PanARMENIAN.Net - Georgia will not host regular international flights until October 1, Georgia Today cited the country's Civil Aviation Agency as saying.

"Restrictions on regular international air services do not apply to direct international flights between Tbilisi International Airport and the airports of Munich (Germany), Paris (France) and Riga (Latvia).

"Therefore, if the epidemiological situation in Georgia and the mentioned countries does not worsen, the regular flights carried out by Lufthansa, Air France and airBaltic will continue in accordance with the established schedule," the agency said.

"Decision on renewal/restoration of other scheduled flights will be taken on the basis of the epidemiologic situation in Georgia and worldwide. Taking into consideration that the situation in the field of aviation cannot be actually predicted and that the decisions concerning global border and traffic limitations are periodically reviewed, we request the citizens and passengers to refrain from buying the tickets on flights in either direction until dates of restoration of scheduled flights and flight timetables are published by official sources."

The opening of air traffic and international tourism was scheduled for September 1. For the record, though, Georgia has opened its borders for travelers from five countries: Germany, France, Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia, and each of them has also opened borders to visitors from Georgia.
