- Georgian Airways, which last week inaugurated flights from Tbilisi (TBS) to Barcelona, Bratislava, Brussels, Berlin Schönefeld and Kazan, this week started serving Bologna (BLQ), Cologne Bonn (CGN) and Paris CDG (CDG) from the Georgian capital. “We are very pleased about the new commitment of Georgian Airways in Cologne Bonn. With Tbilisi, we offer our passengers an exciting and unusual destination,” commented Athanasios Titonis, MD of Cologne Bonn Airport about the new connection. Flights to the German and French airports began on 27 March, while the Italian city was introduced to the airline’s route map the following day. The three routes launched this week from Tbilisi will all be flown twice-weekly on the carrier’s fleet of E190s, with none of them scheduled to face direct competition. The expansion of Georgian Airways from Tbilisi is not yet finished for S18, with the carrier still planning to launch services to Athens and Thessaloniki on 10 and 11 April respectively.
