Austrian Airlines resumes Georgia flights

Austrian Airlines has announced that it intends to relaunch services to the Georgian capital of Tbilisi.

Austrian Airlines has announced that it intends to relaunch services to the Georgian capital of Tbilisi.

The carrier had suspended its four cheap flights to Vienna from Tbilisi after a sudden outbreak of war in the South Ossetian region of the country bordering Russia.

Nearly all major carriers had cancelled their flights into Georgia after hostilities began on August 7th, although many have now resumed routes.

German carrier Lufthansa, which offered ten weekly flights between Munich and the capital, resumed its services on Friday, August 15th.

Turkish Airlines has also resumed its 28 weekly flights between Tbilisi and Istanbul, while Ukraine International Airlines and Lithuanian Airlines have also followed suit.

However, the Foreign Office and US department of state are still advising passengers against travel to the region, although Russia has begun withdrawing troops.

Other carriers, including bmi and AirBaltic, have also resumed their services to the war-torn country.
