LONDON – Dubai based carrier flydubai has announced it will be re-launching flights to Batumi for its summer 2021 schedule. The carrier currently operates flights to Tbilisi International Airport (TBS) in Georgia and will now alongside this be operating a three times weekly service to Batumi International Airport (BUS), with flights due to start on May 12 and operate up until September 01.
The reopening of the route will now see flydubai’s network reach 76 points in 46 different countries, and with Emirates Airlines confirmed to be code-sharing on the route, will see travellers have options for an additional 155 destinations around the globe from two airlines’ hub at Dubai International Airport (DXB).

We remain focused on adding more options for travel this summer with the expectation that international travel restrictions will have eased. Flights are available to book on flydubai.com. In addition, passengers will have the option to choose full packages from holidays by flydubai.”
flyduabi also confirmed that it would still continue to offer its multi-stage COVID-19 travel insurance cover, allowing both business and leisure travellers better peace of mind before and after they catch their flights that they will not get left stranded should any new or strict travel restrictions be implemented by any country they may be travelling too.
