First flight from Georgia to Sochi in over 10 years arrives for Olympics

For the first time in more than 10 years, a flight from Georgia to Sochi has landed, carrying four Georgian Olympic officials for the Winter Games.

After a brief war between the two countries took place in 2008, flights between Georgia and Russia were canceled. Even before that, there were no direct flights between Georgia and Sochi. There have been, however, occasional flights between Moscow and Tbilisi since 2010.

According to a Georgian Airlines company spokesperson, 15 passengers were on board the flight.

Many people in Georgia remain bitter about the war in 2008, because two separatist territories became outside Georgia’s control as a result, one of which is Abkhazia, just south of Sochi.
