China Southern Airlines will launch daily flights from Tbilisi International Airport in Georgia’s capital to Ürümqi, the capital of China’s Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region, starting later this month.
TAV Georgia, the company operating Tbilisi and Batumi airports in the country, announced on Friday the new flights would start from September 27.
The airline currently offers three weekly flights between the destinations, it added.
China Southern Airlines resumed flights to Tbilisi International Airport in January, following a three-year break caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.
The addition of flights also follows the upgrading of Georgia-China relations to a “strategic partnership” level in July.
