Wizz Air launches 12 new flights to Georgia

Georgian tourism, still reeling from the news that Russia has banned its airlines from flying to the country, received a huge boost on June 25 when Hungarian low-cost airline Wizz Air announced 12 new routes from its Georgian hub, Kutaisi.

The new flights will serve Turku (Finland), Nice (France), Baden-Baden, Hamburg, Frankfurt and Nuremberg (Germany), Heraklion (Greece), Naples, Pisa and Venice (Italy), Poznan (Poland) and Stockholm (Sweden).

Seven out of the twelve new routes (Baden-Baden, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Naples, Pisa, Poznan and Venice) will be launched by the end of 2019. The others will be operational from the summer of 2020.

“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. There is high interest towards Georgia from the Scandinavian countries,” said Georgian economy minister Natela Turnava.
