The airline will provide flights on a daily basis. The private airline Georgian Airways will launch a regular line between Bratislava and the Georgian capital of Tbilisi on March 27, 2018. The airline will provide flights two times per week, on Tuesday and Friday.

“Passengers from Bratislava will be able to make use of six Wizz Air flight routes next year - to Skopje [Macedonia], Kiev [Ukraine], Warsaw [Poland], Sofia [Bulgaria], Tuzla [Bosnia and Herzegovina] and also a new London-Luton route,” said Jozef Pojedinec, general director and board of director’s chairman of Bratislava Airport as cited by the TASR newswire.
