Baku, Azerbaijan, October 17
By Tamilla Mammadova – Trend:
Georgia will welcome if Russian officials revise the decision and resume direct flights to our country, Minister of Economy and Sustainable Development of Georgia Natia Turnava said, Trend reports via the Georgian media outlets.
She explained that the decision of Rosaviation which allows Siberian Airlines (S-7) to implement flights from Moscow to Kutaisi does not mean flight resumption.
“The fact, based on Russian media reports, does not mean the resumption of flights so far. This requires a number of formal procedures and we have not received any kind of corresponding notification. Therefore, I cannot confirm that this is a resumption of flights, but I would like to say once again, we would welcome if this decision is made”, Turnava said.
Rosaviation granted Siberian Airlines (S-7) permission to implement flights from Moscow to Kutaisi. The relevant document is published on the official website of the Federal Air Transport Agency of Russia.
Russian President Vladimir Putin issued a decree imposing a temporary ban on flights, including commercial ones, from Russia to Georgia starting July 8.
