The 1,556-kilometre seasonal sector will operate until mid-October and will face direct competition from S7 Airlines, which flies thrice-weekly between the two airports. On 13 July, the carrier commenced a weekly service (Mondays) from St Petersburg (LED) to Tbilisi (TBS), Georgia’s capital city. The 2,253-kilometre route will face direct competition from Georgian Airways, which flies twice-weekly on the city pair.
