Four flights a week
The Turkish Airlines and the Georgian flagship Airzena companies reached an agreement over operation of air flights on a parity basis. Both the Georgian and the Turkish sides will conduct two flights per week.

September
Regular flights of Georgian and Turkish Airlines between Tbilisi and Istanbul will start from September 15.

Charters
On July 30 the Georgian flagship company will conduct a charter flight to Antalya and on August 6 - to Bodrum. The Turkish side also has the right to conduct similar charter flights.

Suspended since April
The flights of the Turkish Airlines to Georgia, which was operating three flights per week, were suspended on April 15 after the decision of the Civil Aviation Administration and the decree of the Georgian Parliament.

The Georgian side explained cancellation of the flight license to the British and Turkish companies with unpaid taxes, inadequate legal base and unsolved disputes with the Georgian flagship company Airzena.

British Mediterranean Airways
Georgia also suspended flights of the British Mediterranean Airways, which is the franchise partner of the British Airways, which operated flights between Tbilisi and London before this April.
