On May 10, Russian President Vladimir Putin lifted restrictions on flights to Georgia, which had been in effect since July 2019. The Kremlin's decision to lift the ban on air travel to Georgia and at the same time the visa regime was welcomed by the Georgian government, but was met with extreme concern by the president, the opposition, and Western partners.

Sales of tickets at Azimut are already open.

Tickets of two categories are on sale: for 5 kg of hand baggage and 23 kg of luggage - about 20,675 rubles, or about 670 GEL per one way. In the other category, 10 kg of hand luggage and 23 kg of checked luggage, the tickets are 2.5 times more expensive.

A total of five airlines that want to fly between Russia and Georgia have applied to the department so far, Davitashvili said. Among them are four Russian carriers and Georgian Airways.

The Civil Aviation Agency states that the decision on each application will be made after a detailed study of the current status of airlines and their aircraft with regard to international sanctions or restrictions. Flights will be operated only by non-sanctioned companies and aircraft.

"As of today, Azimuth Airlines is not on the EU's blacklist", the agency said in a statement.

Azimuth Airlines is on the sanctions list of Ukraine. but is not on the EU and U.S. sanctions lists, Netgazeti noted,

Earlier it was reported that Azimut would fly Superjets, as they are owned by Russian leasing companies and are not subject to sanctions banning service at foreign airports.

Today the Georgian Airports Association also denied rumors that Kutaisi International Airport had refused to accept flights from Russia. Russian airlines, which are not under sanctions, are ready to accept all three international airports in Georgia - in Tbilisi, Batumi and Kutaisi, the statement said.
