Direct flights from Tel Aviv to Batumi International Airport will be performed three times a week on Monday, Thursday and Friday with Boeing-737, Boeing-757 and Airbus A-320 type aircrafts.

The TAV Georgia official webpage also wrote that El Al Israel Airlines would launch flights between Tbilisi International Airport and Tel-Aviv from May 31.
