Easyjet Explores Direct Flight Opportunities with Georgia at Connect 2023
The 19th international Aviation Forum CONNECT 2023 has commenced in Tangier, Morocco, hosting 600 delegates from 75 airlines and 280 airports across 60 countries.
Among the represented airports is the Association of Airports of Georgia, attending the event with its director, Irakli Karkashadze. The forum was inaugurated by Karen Bouteau, the Executive Director of the French Airports Agency and founder of CONNECT, who expressed gratitude in her opening address.
One of the highlights of the forum was the Association of Georgian Airports' meeting with the British low-budget airline, EASYJET, to discuss potential air traffic from Tbilisi and Kutaisi international airports. As Britain is an essential tourist market for Georgia, EASYJET's analysis of the Georgian aviation market signifies an important opportunity for the country. "EASYJET already knows our market quite well and is in the process of studying specific details and tourist flows between the two countries," noted Irakli Karkashadze, the director of the Association of Georgian Airports.
In addition to the meeting with EASYJET, the Association of Georgian Airports has scheduled meetings with Eurowings, AIR Serbia, Saudia Airlines, and Naples Airport, indicating that the forum presents significant prospects for the growth and expansion of Georgian airports.
