The Turkish transport company Ulusoy and its partner, the Dutch company Euroline will open regular road traffic from Georgia to Turkey and from Turkey to Europe on Jan. 20.

Ulusoy, a leading operator in Turkey and around the world, owns buses, airlines, ships and other vehicles.

The company will perform trips with modern buses and transport passengers from Georgia to Trabzon, Istanbul, Ankara and Antalya, and from Istanbul to Munich, Stuttgart, Nuremberg, Frankfurt and Amsterdam.

Each bus passes a mandatory technical check before and after the trip. Moreover, all passengers will be insured by the GPI Holding.

"Ulusoy's main strategy is the introduction of services in compliance with European standards. The company's leadership has started to cooperate with the GPI Holding insurance company to protect the interests of passengers, and this is the first precedent in Georgia," the head of GPI Holding's corporate service channels, Goga Chachhiani, said.

The minimum ticket price from Tbilisi to Trabzon is $9, and from Ankara and Istanbul - $19.
