Saba Kiknadze, founder of the travel company Caucasus Travel notes with BM.GE, that government’s decision on flight commence is delayed, and even exaggerated.

"We went through very simple and fragile steps towards the liberalization of flights. First, we delayed the first stage of the opening, then the scale was not correctly selected. Lufthansa fulfilled merely 2 flights in a week. We could have increased the slots for Lufthansa, Air France and Air Baltic ... and it continued for a long time.

Representatives of tourism sector are very disappointed. We acted very persuasively in order to pass this period and use the status of a safe country. However, we failed, we did not use the status of a safe country," Saba Kiknadze said.

The founder of Caucasus Travel believes that the flights scheduled for November 1 will be mainly used by Georgian citizens, as Georgia might have peak of coronavirus cases. As for December, no one knows what will happen.

“All decisions are announced irregularly. If someone decides to come, they will still be individual travelers from the low-income segment,” Saba Kikbadze explained.
