Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 22 Aug.'11 / 14:49

Qatar Airways, one of the Arab world's largest carriers, said on Sunday it was switching the launch date of its new flights to Azerbaijan and Georgia from originally planned November 30 to February 1, 2012.

“With capacity increases planned on many routes, we face constraints on aircraft availability, therefore decided to revise these two route launch dates and move them to February,” Akbar Al Baker, chief executive officer of Qatar Airways, said in a statement on August 21.

The company said passengers with tickets and confirmed bookings to and from Tbilisi and Baku will be rebooked on alternative flights to their final destination.

Georgia and Qatar signed air transport agreement based on ‘open skies’ principle allowing unrestricted number of flights between the two countries in February, 2011.
