After nine years in the Georgian market TAV Airports Holding remains fully committed to its activities in Georgia, the general manager of its daughter division in the country confirmed to The HUB Daily during this year’s inaugural Routes Silk Road forum in the country’s capital city, Tbilisi. Mete Erkal said TAV Georgia will “continue its activity until 2027 as per the agreement in effect.”
TAV Georgia started its operation in Georgia in 2005 and has made an investment worth over $100 million in the country with new passengers terminals at both Tbilisi and Batumi international airports opening in 2007.
According to Erkal the project at Tbilisi International Airport has included construction and design of a new terminal, car park, improvements of the apron, taxiway and runway and acquisition of ground handling equipment, while Batumi International Airport was entirely designed and constructed by TAV Georgia.
“High service quality and safety in our airports play a significant role in the development of the tourism industry of the country,” said Erkal, “and this reflects very positively on the growth of the economy of Georgia.”
“Our first priority is to make Tbilisi International Airport an aviation centre of this region and give the world the great possibility to discover and enjoy Georgia,” he added.
