The beauty of both Georgia’s nature and culture have both been heavily influenced by its geographic. It is what makes the country so unique but also what can make the hidden gem tricky to fly to. Here are some useful tips for making an efficient and not too costly trip to Georgia. Most airliners only fly to Tbilisi from regional hubs such as Istanbul and Kiev. Many times, you will have to transfer at one of those airports (especially when traveling from the EU). Luckily, the amount of flights going to Tbilisi directly is increasing. Please also check airports which are abroad but close enough, Georgia has some direct connections that you might not expect.
