Georgia is a country located in the South Caucasus region of Eurasia, known for its stunning natural beauty and rich cultural heritage.
The country has a well-developed transportation infrastructure, which includes a number of modern airports that serve both domestic and international destinations. These airports play a crucial role in connecting Georgia to the rest of the world, facilitating tourism, trade, and business. With the increasing demand for air travel in the region, Georgia's airports have undergone significant upgrades and expansions in recent years, ensuring a comfortable and seamless experience for passengers.
From the capital city of Tbilisi to the coastal city of Batumi, Georgia's airports offer a range of services and facilities to meet the needs of travelers.
Recently I expressed my joy about Kutaisi Airport. Today I found interesting statistics on the Georgian Civil Aviation Agency's webpage. Statistics about numbers of passengers served in Georgian airports 2010-2012.
Right now - there are 4 airports in Georgia, which we have data for:
Let's start with the total number of passengers served in all Georgian airports from 2010- 2012:
According to data available on GCAA website, Georgian airports in 2012 had ~ 16% passenger growth.
Now lets see, how each airports has performed:
Tbilisi International Airport 2010-2012
Kutaisi International airport 2010-2012
Batumi International Airport 2010-2012
Mestia Airport 2010-2012
As seen from charts above, all airports, except Mestia airport, has increased passenger growth rate during period 2010-2012.
My future forecasts is that Kutaisi airport will became second largest soon, this or next year, by outperforming Batumi airport. Why such confidence? In 6 month period (Jan-Jully, 2013) Kutaisi airport has served already 141 844 passengers, and they are adding more flights to and from Kutaisi in future.
