Regular flights to Moscow return

Georgian airline company Airzena will conduct charter flights to Moscow during the entire summer. They will take place three times a week from July 1.

Nino Giorgobiani, head of Airzena’s press service, stated that Airzena will carry out three Tbilisi-Moscow-Tbilisi flights a week and Russian airline Siberia is also planning to conduct charter flights to Tbilisi.

The United Transport Administration of Georgia said that Siberia Airlines had applied for permission to conduct charter flights to Tbilisi, and had received a positive response, but the company has not provided a flight schedule so far.

After regular Tbilisi-Moscow-Tbilisi flights ceased Airzena began making charter flights on Christmas and Easter holidays. Charter flights also took place during the last week of May.

The air link between Russia and Georgia was initially suspended due to the Russian spy scandal in 2006. In the summer of 2008 regular flights were restored until the 2008 August War.
