After three-year suspension, Russia’s Sibir Airlines, operating under the brand name S7 Airlines, re-launches Moscow-Kutaisi direct flights starting from August 6, the Russian air carrier said.
Kutaisi, Georgia’s second largest city in western part of the country, will be the second Georgian city, where S7 Airlines will conduct flights. The Russian air carrier resumed direct Moscow-Tbilisi flights in parallel with Georgian Airways last summer. Moscow-Kutaisi round-trip ticket costs EUR 350.
The Russian air carrier, which conducts flights to Tbilisi on a daily base, and will conduct two flights to Kutaisi per week, has cut flights to Georgia after the August 2008 war. Before the cut of regular flights S7 Airlines was also conducting flights to Batumi.
Russia cut regular direct air flights with Georgia in October, 2006, following spy row between the two countries. The flights were restored in late March, 2008, but were again suspended after the August war.
