Air carrier to link Moscow and Tbilisi for Easter

Georgia’s private air carrier Georgian Airways will serve charter flights between Tbilisi and Moscow over Easter. The air connection between the two countries will be restored for the second time since August 2008.

Russia’s Ministry of Transport has given the green light for the deal.

Direct charter flights linking the two capitals will be conducted on April 1st-3rd and April 10th, 12th and 14th, head of the PR department of Georgian Airways, Nino Giorgobiani, said. She underlined that the agreement with the Russian side was reached without any involvement from the Georgian government or political parties.

Direct air connection between Russia and Georgia was canceled, on Russia’s initiative, in August 2008 after the Ossetian War.

In January this year, Georgian Airways conducted several charter flights to Moscow during the New Year holidays with Russia’s permission.
