The air company reports that one of the reasons for the closing of the flights is the decrease of the passenger flow. Another reason is the situation in Ukraine.

“At this stage, unfortunately, we are forced to cancel the flights. It concerns the winter season. Only Tbilisi-Tel Aviv flights remain. Other flights will be resumed from late March, starting from the summer navigation season. It is caused by a few factors. In comparison with our forecasts, from the point of view of the passenger flow, the worst result is created. Besides, the recent events in Ukraine influenced it. First of all, we stop the flight to Kharkiv and now we are forced to stop the flight to Kyiv,” Igor Aptsiauri, the commercial director of the company reported.
