Georgian Economy Minister Natia Turnava said they have signed an agreement with Hungarian low-cost airline Wizz Air today.
"This is a unique opportunity to receive more European tourists. For the first time in our history we will have direct flights to Finland and Sweden. As you know, there is a high interest towards Georgia from the Scandinavian countries and now we will be able to receive tourists from these countries," Agenda.ge cited Turnava as saying.
Wizz Air will launch flights to 12 cities from Georgia’s Kutaisi International Airport: Frankfurt (Germany), Hamburg (Germany), Baden-Baden (Germany), Poznan (Poland), Venice (Italy), Naples (Italy), Pisa (Italy), Nice (France), Stockholm (Sweden), Nuremberg (Germany), Heraklion (Greece) and Turku (Finland).
Of these new routes seven will be launched by the end of 2019 (Poznan, Hamburg, Naples, Venice, Pisa, Frankfurt and Baden-Baden), while the rest of the routes will be added in summer 2020.
