UAE's Air Arabia set to launch summer flights to Georgian city

Low cost carrier Air Arabia has announced plans to launch seasonal direct flights from Sharjah to Batumi, Georgia, to cater for summer tourist demand.

Flights will operate from July 2 to September 30, with Batumi becoming the second city after Tbilisi to join Air Arabia’s network in Georgia.

Flights will be operational twice a week on Thursdays and Saturdays.

Adel Al Ali, Group CEO of Air Arabia, said: “We are happy to announce an extension to our connectivity in Georgia. Batumi is a growing tourism destination and is popular during the summer months.

"We expect to see healthy demand for the flights and further encourage tourism between the two countries.” 

Batumi is a historically significant cultural and trading port on the coast of the Black Sea. Since 2010, it has seen major development from the construction of high-rise buildings and the renovation of its old town.

The announcement by Air Arabia comes after the carrier launched its flights to Sarajevo in Bosnia and Herzegovina further cementing its expansion in Europe.
