United Airports of Georgia appointed official host of Routes Silk Road 2014

It has been announced that United Airports of Georgia (UAG), under the auspices of the Ministry of Economy and Sustainable Development, has been appointed as the official host of Routes Silk Road 2014, the route development forum connecting CIS, Central and Eastern Europe, Middle East and Asia.

The event, taking place from July 6-8, 2014, will take place in Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia, and will offer airports, airlines, tourism authorities and other stakeholders the perfect platform to conduct business and improve air transport networks. It is expected to attract approximately 250 delegates.

Minister of Economy, Georgia, Giorgi Kvirikashvili remarked: “We are privileged to host Routes Silk Road 2014 in Tbilisi. It is a unique opportunity for Georgian airports, airlines, tourism authority and their stakeholders to further develop its business and expand the network.”

He continued: “I believe Tbilisi is a perfect location for this event and it will be a great experience for all attendees. The fact that Georgia is hosting such an event underlines the great dedication of our country to the industry as well as reflecting our aspiration to turn Georgia into a regional hub, in the nearest future, as one of the important points of the historic Silk Road.”

Also commenting on the news was CEO, UAG, Kate Aleksidze, who decalred: “In recent years Georgia have seen unprecedented growth of air transport, passengers and number of tourists. United Airports of Georgia has developed some major infrastructural projects during the last few years and has a lot to show to the international community of the aviation industry.”

The Routes Silk Road 2014 event aims to raise awareness of the destination to the global aviation community and promote the country as an important geographical location. This is underlined by the significant growth in passenger numbers (over 30 per cent) which the country has witnessed across all Georgian airports since 2012, with further growth expected throughout 2014.

The event will also allow UAG to showcase Kutaisi David the Builder International Airport which opened in 2012.
