UTair Ukraine’s arrival in Georgia’s capital Tbilisi was celebrated with a cake depicting the airline’s ATR 72 aircraft. UTair Ukraine now takes on Aerosvit by operating twice-weekly from Donetsk in eastern Ukraine.
- UTair Ukraine commenced services between Donetsk (DOK) in eastern Ukraine and Tbilisi (TBS), the capital of Georgia, on 26 July. Flights will operate twice-weekly (Thursdays and Sundays) using a mix of the airline’s CRJ200s and ATR 72s. TAV Georgia’s GM Mete Erkal expressed his appreciation in relation to UTair Ukraine’s new flights from Donetsk and said: “I am confident that these flights will not only create added value for Georgia in terms of civil aviation but also facilitate the deepening of the relationships between Georgia and Ukraine. The entry of each new company to Georgia’s aviation market is another clear example of how tourism and aviation sectors are developing in Georgia.” Competition on the route is provided by Aerosvit, which operates weekly flights using an ERJ during the summer months.
