Tax on Tbilisi airport passengers increased
The Tbilisi International Airport will increase the tax levied on its passengers by 2 dollars to 24 dollars as from March 1, head of the Georgian Airports Association Ketevan Aleksidze said in a TV program ‘Business contract’.
The tax is part of the cost of any of the flights taking off from the Tbilisi airport. Its increase means airfares may rise too.
Flight costs may also go up because of a recent spike in fuel prices, said head of the airline Georgian Airways Givi Davitashvili.
The Tbilisi airport served 2 million passengers and earned 44 million US dollars in 2016. It is operated by the Turkish company TAV Airports.
