Aegean’s new route to Georgia’s capital Tbilisi was welcomed with a cake featuring an Aegean Airlines aircraft, the airline’s logo as well as the logo of the airport operator TAV. The twice-weekly A320 service provides major boost on the route, which Georgian Airways operates with only 50 seats a week.
- Aegean Airlines launched a new route to Georgia on 11 June when the Greek Star Alliance airline connected the capitals of Greece and Georgia, Athens (ATH) and Tbilisi (TBS), with two flights a week. The flights, which are operated overnight on Mondays and Thursdays with 168-seat A320s, compete with Georgian Airways’ weekly 50-seat CRJ operations. Dimitris Gerogiannis, Managing Director of Aegean Airlines, said: “With today’s launch we are now offering customers non-stop service to Tbilisi, the significant industrial, social, and cultural center of Georgia. Our flights from Tbilisi offer convenient connections over our base of Athens to an extensive network of more than 10 popular destinations throughout Greece as well as to a network of 14 international destinations.” TAV Georgia GM Mete Erkal added: “I am sure that regular flights from Athens to Tbilisi will please thousands of Georgians who are living and working in Greece. I hope that the new route between two countries will also be popular among Greek tourists.”
