The Tourism Administration of Georgia hopes the country will soon be able to increase the frequency of international flights, notwithstanding circumstances of the pandemic, head of the agency Mariam Kvrivishvili has said.
Kvrivishvili made the comment while answering questions from local media about prospective resumption of WizzAir and Ryanair airline flights from and to the country following the lockdown.
“We have regular air traffic with the European Union. Air France as well as Lufthansa have resumed flights to Georgia. We also have flights with Riga,” she told reporters.
Kvrivishvili said flights by different airlines were being added to the Georgian airspace on a daily basis and said foreign travelers as well as Georgian citizens could enter the country by charter flights.
The Council of the European Union updated the list of countries for which travel restrictions should be gradually lifted on July 31 and the list still included Georgia.
Georgia has opened its borders for travelers from Germany, France, Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia unconditionally. All five countries have also opened borders for Georgia. (Agenda/Business World Magazine)
