Wizz Air & Turkish Airlines to Resume Int’l Flights

Wizz Air and Turkish Airlines are to resume international flights from Georgia despite the continued COVID-19 risk. Turkish Airlines January 2021 flight schedule has already been published, seeing the airline expected to operate three two-way flights a week from Tbilisi to the new Istanbul Airport.

Flights will be operated every Monday, Wednesday and Sunday at 4:50 p.m. 

Hungarian low-cost airline Wizz Air also plans to resume operations in Georgia starting March 2021. 

Andrash Rado, the head of corporate communications of the company, says the plan is to resume the 40 flights that Wizz Air was flying before the pandemic.

"We are in a constant state of dialogue with the government. Nothing has changed in this regard. We are very pleased to be able to return and continue aviation activity from March. But of course, everything will depend on the restrictions that will be in force at that time, both in Georgia and in other countries of the world," said Rado.

Rado added that he does not rule out the addition of new destinations from Kutaisi International Airport. 

"We flew from Kutaisi to about 30-40 destinations during normal conditions. We want to restore all directions, and also add several new ones. But certainly, everything will depend on the epidemiological situation in March.”
