The company Service Air will start regular flights between Tbilisi and Batumi starting Friday.
On Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, flights will be operated twice a day, and on Fridays and Sundays - three times. The plane will not fly until Wednesday.
The Georgian government hopes that the launch of regular flights between Tbilisi and Batumi will contribute to the development of tourism, including domestic tourism, the website of the Georgian Economy Ministry said.
The flights will be performed by a 32-seat Saab passenger plane. One-way ticket costs 90 lari.
Service Air already operates flights in the direction of Kutaisi, Mestia and Ambrolauri from the Natakhtari airfield, which is located near Tbilisi.
