Milan Bergamo Airport has recently introduced a new airline to its roster, with Georgian Airways initiating a connection to Tbilisi from the Italian airport. Starting today, the carrier will operate a biweekly service (on Tuesdays and Fridays) to its home base in Georgia’s capital city, utilizing its fleet of Boeing 737 aircraft with a seating capacity of 133 passengers. The route spans a distance of 2,844 kilometers.

Georgian Airways is set to expand its reach from the Lombardy region gateway by venturing into a new country market without any competing airlines. This year, the airline will introduce Tbilisi as a new destination, thereby bolstering Milan Bergamo’s route map for the summer of 2023. The addition of Tbilisi will contribute over 5,000 seats to the airport’s capacity, surpassing 140 direct routes available to travelers.

Expressed by Giacomo Cattaneo, the Director of Commercial Aviation at SACBO, he expresses delight in the arrival of Georgian Airways and their newfound dedication to Milan Bergamo Airport. With the inclusion of Tbilisi in our network, we can now provide passengers with an enticing and diverse destination situated at the crossroads of Europe and Asia. Cattaneo further mentioned that this new service will also facilitate connections for travelers from Milan Bergamo to various destinations through Georgian Airways, such as Moscow, Yerevan, Tel Aviv, and more.

Milan Bergamo Airport has experienced remarkable growth in its network, witnessing a staggering 42% rise in passenger numbers this year compared to 2022. When compared to 2019, there is an 18% increase, with over six million passengers welcomed by the end of May. To further stimulate this growth, the airport has made additional improvements to its network during the peak summer season. Air Arabia, for instance, has augmented its services to Cairo and Sharjah, increasing their frequency to daily operations starting from June 3rd and July 3rd, respectively. Moreover, Norwegian has launched a biweekly service to Oslo, commencing from June 22nd.
