About The Airline

The air company ''Airzena'' was established in September 1993. Initially, ''Airzena'' operated charter flights to United Arab Emirates, Italy, China, Egypt, India, Syria, as well as the regular flight to Vienna. In that economically and politically complicated period, due to the correctly selected strategy, the company succeeded to achieve recognition and retain its share in the aviation market. In 1999 ''Airzena'' became the flag carrier of Georgia. In August 2004, the company changed its name to ''Georgian Airways''. However, ''Airzena'' has remained as a short brand name and is still widely used. In the first half of 2000 the air company's management made a decision to modernize the fleet, and leased two BOEING737-500 aircraft from a German company ''Hapag-Lloyd''. This was the first case when the Georgian air company started operating the up-to-date Western equipment. The business focus of the airline is to provide safe and reliable passenger and cargo air transportation with great customer service. The company's base airport is Tbilisi International Airport. Iase Zautashvili is the General Director of the air company. IATA member since 2010. In 2008 ''Georgian Airways'' has successfully passed three IOSA audits and the last certification was effectuated in October 2012, and is valid till March 2017.
