Air Arabia, Georgia Team up for Indian Roadshow

Air Arabia has teamed up with the Georgian National Tourism Administratio to organize a roadshow in India.

The events, which were held in Delhi and Mumbai, were designed to showcase Georgia as a destination to the Indian travel trade, as well as providing an update on Air Arabia’s flights and services.

Events were held in Delhi on 29 October and Mumbai on 30 October, and were attended by Sachin Nene, Air Arabia’s regional manager for India, and George Chogovadze, head of the Georgian National Tourism Administration.

“Georgia is still lesser known in the Indian market and we are creating awareness about the destination and its offerings through roadshows and by meeting travel trade in the country,” said Chogovadze.

Georgia witnessed an 81% jump in Indian tourists in the first nine months of 2015, and it is keen to build on this growth by showcasing its tourism products, such as ski resorts, vineyards, wellness resorts and MICE facilities.

Air Arabia started operating direct services to Georgia’s capital, Tbilisi, in October 2014, from its home base of Sharjah. It also flies to 13 cities in India: Jaipur, Kochi, Nagpur, Coimbatore, Thiruvananthapuram, Goa, Kozhikode, Hyderabad, New Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Ahmedabad and Chennai.
