Hungarian low-cost airline Wizz Air will add new routes from Georgia’s Kutaisi International Airport to 12 cities, announces the Ministry of Economy of Georgia.

Wizz Air will launch flights to Frankfurt (Germany), Hamburg (Germany), Baden-Baden (Germany), Poznan (Poland), Venice (Italy), Naples (Italy), Pisa (Italy), Nice (France), Stockholm (Sweden), Nuremberg (Germany), Heraklion (Greece) and Turku (Finland).

Of these new routes seven will be launched by the end of 2019 (Poznan, Hamburg, Naples, Venice, Pisa, Frankfurt and Baden-Baden), while the rest of the routes will be added in summer 2020.

Georgian Economy Minister Natia Turnava said that several months of intense negotiations had been successfully completed and “we have signed an agreement with Wizz Air today”.

This is a unique opportunity to receive more European tourists. For the first time in our history we will have direct flights to Finland and Sweden. As you know, there is a high interest towards Georgia from the Scandinavian countries and now we will be able to receive tourists from these countries”, Turnava said.

Wizz Air has been carrying out flights on the Georgian aviation market since it opened its first Caucasian base in Kutaisi in September 2016.
