Georgia is opening its airspace to international flights from July 1 and the international airports are making preparations to receive tourists and to ensure their services are in line with the recommendations of the Ministry of Health.
Disinfectant machines for hands have already been set up, as well as thermal cameras to scan travelers arriving at the airports to detect whether they have a high temperature.
In addition, special marks have been set up to ensure social distancing near terminals and special barriers have been constructed at registration counters to avoid direct contact between passengers and employees.
Head of Georgian United Airports Tamar Archuadze said that if the passengers did not have the symptoms typical for Covid-19, they would be able to travel.
At the same time, as she noted, at this stage it would be possible to take on board hand luggage, but passengers were asked to have as compact a bag as possible to avoid delays on boarding.
She said that currently negotiations were underway with so called “green countries” in order to set up flights between these countries without requiring any additional documents. Otherwise, it might be mandatory for tourists entering Georgia to prove they have tested negative for coronavirus in the past 72 hours. (Agenda/Business World Magazine)
