Passenger flow of Georgian airports decreases by 3% in January 2020

According to the Georgian Airports Association under the Ministry of Economy and Sustainable Development, in January 2020, the country’s airports served 314,079 people, which is by 3% less than in January 2019.

At the same time, the decline was recorded only due to the Tbilisi Internaitonal Airport, in all the rest, on the contrary, there is an increase.

In January 2020, the Tbilisi International Airport served 211,590 people, which is by 16% less than in January 2019. The reasons for the recession included the cessation of flights with Russia and a significant reduction in passenger traffic with China due to the threat of coronavirus.

At the same time, in January 2020, the Kutaisi International Airport served 79,759 passengers, which is by 43% more, as compared to the same period in 2019. The reason for the growth is concluded in the fact that this airport practically does not operate flights to Russia and China, and mainly works with low-cost airlines flying to European destinations.

The growth also remained for the Batumi International Airport, which served 22,000 passengers in January 2020, which is by 38% more, as compared to the same period in 2019.
