Following the introduction of services to Azerbaijan already in 2001, and to Kazakhstan in August 2007, Cargolux Airlines International S.A., Europe’s largest all-cargo airline, now announces weekly services to Tbilisi / Georgia, to further expand in the Central Asian region.
The first flight to Georgia’s capital, Tbilisi, will be operated on 6 November, 2008. CV 7984 leaves Luxembourg every Thursday at 09.00 p.m., arriving in Tbilisi on Friday morning at 04.10 a.m.
The country and its economy are undergoing a period of change. The infrastructure and equipment are being upgraded, and the market requires direct airfreight services connecting Georgia with worldwide origins.
Tbilisi fits well in Cargolux’s global route network in support of the oil and gas industry, linking the world’s main energy supply centers.
For this reason, on board Cargolux’s B747-400 freighters to the new destination Tbilisi, the loads will mostly be equipment for the oil and gas industry. In addition, shipments will also include perishables and industrial products.
