An early warning system in the Black Sea port town of Poti has been installed, announces Georgian Air Navigation of the Ministry of Economy.

Georgian Air Navigation purchased meteorological radars, the total cost of which exceeded 3 million GEL (about $1.12m/€0.99m), from the tender winner US company Enterprise Electronics Corporation.

After introducing the best US system, [we can say that] the best early warning system is already functioning in Georgia today. The new system enables us to constantly scan the airspace information, detect hazardous meteorological cases for flight and timely give signal to aircrafts. This will make air traffic management in Georgia's airspace more flexible and effective”, said General Director of Georgian Air Navigation Gocha Mezverishvili.

This new system will contribute to flight safety in all three of Georgia’s international airports – in Tbilisi, Kutaisi and Batumi, announces Georgian Air Navigation.
