Georgia complains to ICAO after changing Sukhum airport code

Konstantin Kavtaradze, Permanent Representative of Georgia to the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), said that the organization considers Sukhumi airport as Georgian airspace, the Georgian First Channel reported on August 2.

Mr. Kavtaradze met with the President of the ICAO Council Olumuiva Benard Aliu, the Secretary General of the organization Fan Liu and other leaders of the international organization. ICAO supported the Georgian side.

“Whatever code Russia assigns to Sukhumi Airport, ICAO will always consider it as part of Georgia’s airspace,” the International Civil Aviation Organization said.

As REGNUM reported, on July 30, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Abkhazia, Daur Kove, said that Georgia’s statements about the inadmissibility of air flights to/from Sukhumi airport were another attempt to isolate the republic. “It will not work. The dog barks, the caravan goes,” the Minister added.
