Georgian Airways Background

One who flies by Georgian Airways is likely to be traveling to or from a destination in Georgia. It is important to be moderate in judgment of the services and efficiency of this airline considering that it is a fledgling airline owned by a fairly new nation. Georgia had the first democratic elections and became independent from communist rule in 1991.

The next few years were marked with much political upheaval with several changes in government and political movements such as the Rose Revolution in 2003. The present government is still in the process of attempting to introduce economic reforms and therefore there are several positive expectations regarding Georgian Airways in the years to come.
