Starting from July 31, Indigo, India's largest airline, will begin operating direct, regular flights between Delhi and Tbilisi three times a week. This move is expected to strengthen the economic and tourism ties between India and Georgia.
The airline's management will visit Georgia next week and meet with the management of "Tav Georgia," a subsidiary of TAV Airports Holding, to finalize the technical details necessary for the operation of the flights.
Indigo currently operates flights to 135 destinations, including 77 domestic and 58 international destinations. The addition of Tbilisi to its list of international destinations is a significant development for the airline and the country of Georgia.
"Tav Georgia" has been operating in Georgia since 2005, and its contract with the country will continue until 2027. The company has invested 220 million USD in Georgia, which has led to the construction of new passenger terminals at Tbilisi and Batumi international airports in 2007. In addition, the complete rehabilitation of the existing runway was completed, and a new flight terminal was built at Tbilisi International Airport in 2016-2017.
TAV Airports Holding's multi-million investments in various countries worldwide have resulted in years of experience in operating airports and wise management. As a result, TAV Georgia has become one of the most reliable, stable, and dynamic companies in Georgia, employing 1300 people.
The new flights between Delhi and Tbilisi are expected to provide significant opportunities for business, trade, and tourism between the two countries. The direct flight is expected to increase the number of Indian tourists visiting Georgia and vice versa. The new flights are also expected to facilitate the transportation of goods, opening up new markets and increasing trade between the two nations.
