Aeroflot confirms its plans to resume serving the Georgian market

Thursday, October 10
Aeroflot (SU, Moscow Sheremetyevo) is planning to start operating in Georgia again five years after the short war between Georgia and Russia. It is currently waiting for negotiations between the two countries to conclude regarding the traffic rights, which will allow the Russian national carrier to restore connections between Moscow Sheremetyevo and Tbilisi. According to the aviation schedule database, Aeroflot plans to begin flights from Moscow to Tbilisi from next March on a daily basis using A320-200s. Both S7 Airlines (S7, Novosibirsk) and Georgian Airways (A9, Tbilisi) already operate services between Moscow Domodedovo and Moscow Vnukovo and the Georgian airports of Batumi, Kutaisi and Tbilisi. In the meantime, Air Caucasus (CSG, Tbilisi) also has plans to launch flights to Moscow but so far, the company has not received any response from Moscow regarding traffic rights according to its CEO George Kodua. Air Caucasus already offers scheduled charter flights to Kiev Borispol, Donetsk and Aktau. (ch-aviation)
