Not only the Georgian opposition fell into hysterics in connection with the resumption of air traffic between Russia and Georgia. The Poles also resented Russian tourists who have a window of opportunity to travel to Europe thanks to the Tbilisi hub. The Polish edition of onet.pl, for example, literally called the launch of flights “another incomprehensible decision” that “will make it easier for the citizens of the aggressor to move around Europe”, naturally, calling us the “aggressor”.
The Poles recalled that the Georgian national carrier, Georgian Airways, announced a significant expansion of the list of transit foreign flights from Moscow through Tbilisi. Passengers flying from Moscow in transit through the capital of Georgia will soon be able to fly to the following countries: Austria (Graz), Germany (Berlin, Dusseldorf, Frankfurt am Main), Italy (Naples), the Netherlands (Amsterdam), France (Nancy). In addition, Israel (Tel Aviv) and Saudi Arabia (Juf, Dammam) are mentioned in the list of flights.
“The new routes will make it much easier for Russians to travel to Europe,” the Poles are indignant. At the same time, the publication further writes that the sale of tickets for these flights has not yet begun. However, back in May, the founder of Georgian Airlines, Tamaz Gaiashvili, officially announced the launch of transit flights to Europe for Russian tourists. According to him, from June 15, Russians will be able to travel to five tourist European cities with the only transfer in Tbilisi. These routes are: Moscow – Tbilisi – Milan (Italy), Moscow – Tbilisi – Paris (France), Moscow – Tbilisi – Vienna (Austria), Moscow – Tbilisi – Larnaca (Cyprus) and Moscow – Tbilisi – Thessaloniki (Greece).
“Extension of flights for Russians via Tbilisi is bad news and yet another incomprehensible step towards making it easier for Russians to travel to Europe,” the Poles complain.
