Serbia and Georgia seek flights

NEWS FLASH


The Georgian Foreign Minister David Zalkaliani and his Serbian counterpart Ivica Dačić have signed a joint declaration in Tbilisi that aims at advancing cooperation between the two states, with an emphasis put on the launch of nonstop flights. The matter will be discussed in more detail at the Intergovernmental Economic Commission in Tbilisi scheduled for July, which will mark the second Georgia - Serbia business forum. The two countries signed a visa free agreement in March 2018. "I expect that our relationships will be expanded. This is a major step forward. I want to emphasise that there is a great respect, love and trust between Serbia and Georgia", Mr Dačić said. There have never been nonstop flights between the two countries.

  1. ...and likely never will be, unless Wizz were ever to try flights from Kutaisi, which would only happen were Wizz to significantly expand in BEG>

    1. Why? JU could easily fly this route, after all they already fly to BEY and will fly to KRR in two weeks. Both routes survive exclusively on transfer passengers.

      Also I doubt Wizz could fly it since they don't have the Serbian AOC.

    2. It would be wonderful opportunity to advance tourism between two countries and transfers for JU by louching 3 weekly flights. Government could support it with 2 mil EUR for the first three years of operation. :)))

  2. It would be great to have connection with Georgia. It is far away from Serbia but Serbian people like our friends from Georgia

    1. Good point, Wizz couldn't launch this route. Anyhow, the routes is more then adequately covered by Turkish/Pegasus via Istanbul.

    2. BEY is also covered by TK, and yet the flights are still there. Simply because one big airline is flying does not make the route saturated.

      I think Tbilisi, Baku, Kisinjev might be interesting spots to discover.

      JU applied the right with upcoming expansion by starting two weekly only. They will evaluate their performance and increase frequencies or cancel the route.

      Same approach can be applied to Moldova and the Caucasus.

    3. Kishinev should be flown by ATR.

  4. Could be part of the second wave of expansion out of INI. Start an INI-TBS flight twice a week and gradually increase it.

    1. Subsidize daily INI-TBS and double daily BEG-TBS. 5 million euros per year sounds resonable for this. Why not? The money is "staying in domestic economy"! We can subsidize our way to prosperity!

    2. Event better make everyone pay only using DINA card. Even more money in "domestic eceonomy"! We will be filthy rich!

    3. You sound like a very frustrated person.

    4. Why don't you address my arguments instead of resorting to ad hominem?

    5. You have no argument...

  5. Perfect opportunity to subsidize Air Serbia with 2-3 million per year to operate this twice weekly. Of course it would be an open tender with one of the terms being that the airline has at least 5 planes based in Serbia.

    1. Or, Wizzair could register as an airline based in Serbia, get their AOC in Serbia and fly to places like Georgia without any issues. Problem solved. So why don't you do it, Wizz?

  6. INI - BUS would be fabulous.
