The issue of subsidizing flights is not on the table, of course, Georgian Prime Minister Giorgi Gakharia told the press today.

According to the Prime Minister, subsidized directions, for the most part, are from Kutaisi Airport, and there are direct flights approximately to 50 destinations.

"Kutaisi Airport gets most of the subsidized directions, with direct flights approximately to 50 destinations. Direct flights are the most effect, fastest tools for maximally increasing the number of tourists in the country. Of course, we will use this tool. These forms of subsidizing must be commercially appealing to the country and acceptable for the development of tourism. This tool works very well, though," Giorgi Gakharia said.
