Georgia is working to resume flight connections with the Baltic states after tourist bans will be lifted starting July 1.
To discuss how to renew flights with the Baltic states in as short a time frame as possible, Georgian Minister Natia Turnava had an online meeting with Minister of Transport and Communications of the Republic of Lithuania Jaroslaw Narkiewicz earlier today.
We are preparing to open the tourism season. We communicate with our colleagues on a daily basis, especially from the countries from which we expect tourists,” said Turnava.

Turnava noted that Wizz Air has expressed readiness to resume flights from Kutaisi to Vilnius and also to two other Baltic states.
We know that flights between the Baltic states have resumed and we are working with all three of these countries to resume direct flights [from Georgia],” said Turnava.
Turnava noted that Georgia will do everything to resume flights to the Baltic states starting July 1.
On May 14, Georgian Prime Minister Giorgi Gakharia said that Georgia is negotiating with Israel, Czechia, Poland, the Baltic states, Austria and Georgia’s neighboring countries to receive tourists starting July 1.
