Russian airline Azimuth, which was the first to resume flights in the direction of Tbilisi-Moscow, is starting flights to Batumi and Sochi. According to the company, flights on the Batumi-Moscow route start on October 9, and on the Tbilisi-Sochi route on October 11.
BMG is awaiting a response from the Civil Aviation Agency, on whether Azimuth has received permission to fly. After 2019, the first flight on the Moscow-Tbilisi flight was performed by the Russian Azimuth on May 19 of this year.
This became possible after Russian President Vladimir Putin signed an order on May 10 to restore the canceled direct air traffic with Georgia since the summer of 2019.
