Airzena Georgian airline begins building new airport in Tbilisi
Georgia, Tbilisi, July 20 / Trend, N. Kirtzkhalia /
Airzena, a Georgian airline, has begun to build a new airport at the former Vaziani military airbase near Tbilisi.
Airzena's general director Iase Zautashvili stated on Georgian Kommersant radio on Friday, that at the first meeting of the Commission on Aviation market problems the private sector was first to ask about construction of the airport.
According to Zautashvili, Tbilisi International Airport is small and a new airport is needed to drive economic growth.
Airzena's general director noted that if a military airbase exists in Vaziani, then the private sector considers there the most cost effective place to build.
According to Zautashvili, this question will be raised once more at the next meeting of the commission, but he is unaware of the time of that meeting.
