Tbilisi-Paris flights will resume in August, said Georgian Economy Minister Natia Turnava earlier today, adding that Georgia is negotiating with airBaltic to resume Tbilisi-Riga flights as well.
Air France will carry out two flights a week starting early August from Paris Charles de Gaulle and Tbilisi International Airports.
Turnava noted that Georgia is negotiating with countries Georgia has recently opened its borders to and which have also opened their borders for Georgia.
As for other countries, Turnava noted that resumption of direct regular flights will be postponed in August as well.
Turnava noted that Georgian Airways continues its commercial charter flights, and announced that about 16 flights will be carried out by Georgian Airways in August from different cities including Vienna and Amsterdam.
As for charter flights, Turnava noted that one more flight on the route Tbilisi-Berlin-Tbilisi will be added to the five existing routes as Georgian students need to travel to Berlin for short term employment programmes.
Turnava expressed hope that other regular commercial flights will resume soon and prices will return to its older level, although she noted that prices for an economy class is nearly the same as before.
Moreover, Georgia and Germany are resuming air travel and regular flights starting August 2.
German airline Lufthansa will carry out flights two times a week, linking Tbilisi to Munich.
In addition, Georgia remains on the European Union's updated list of countries for which travel restrictions should be lifted.
