flydubai, the Dubai-based airline, has announced that twice-weekly flights from Dubai International (DXB) to Tbilisi International Airport (TBS) in Georgia are available to be booked. Flights to Tbilisi resume as the authorities in Georgia ease travel restrictions for international travel from 01 February.
Jeyhun Efendi, Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations and E-commerce at flydubai, said: “we have steadily grown our network to more than 65 destinations and are pleased to restart our operations to Tbilisi. We will continue to launch flights to more destinations as restrictions ease in countries within our geographic reach. Flights are available to book on flydubai.com.”
In line with the recent announcement, nationals and residents of Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates can now travel to Tbilisi if they have a negative COVID-19 PCR test result taken no more than 72 hours before the departure time of the flight. Visitors will have to take a further COVID-19 PCR test, at their own expense, on the third day after entering Georgia. Alternatively, passengers who hold a COVID-19 vaccination certificate will also be able to travel.
flydubai’s passenger experience has been redesigned to enable travel in a safe environment that minimises crew and passenger contact and offers passengers confidence to travel at every step of their journey. The airline has recently introduced an extended multi-risk travel insurance that includes COVID-19 cover to offer passengers greater peace of mind when travelling. In the UAE, flydubai has also partnered with Aster DM Healthcare and NMC Healthcare to offer passengers PCR testing at special rates. To take advantage of these special rates, passengers must be able to present a valid flydubai booking confirmation along with their Emirates ID or passport copy.
Passengers are required to make sure that they are up to date with the regulations from the IATA Travel Centre for their whole journey and follow the guidance issued by the authorities.
flydubai announced last week the launch of flights to Salzburg and Malta, in addition to the resumption of flights to Catania and Naples, which will commence from May.
