Turnava said that Hungarian low-cost Wizz Air will resume flights from Kutaisi International Airport starting at the end of March and will operate flights to 20 destinations.

"From the end of March, a new airline, Wizz Air Abu Dhabi will start operating flights from Kutaisi to Abu Dahabi twice a week," cited Turnava as saying.

"Pegasus Airlines operated only twice a week, though currently flies daily. Qatar Airways  will operate regular passenger flights four times a week. There will be up to 70 regular flights a week during March," Turnava added.
