Georgia is extending the shutdown on regular air traffic until May 10 following the extension of the state of emergency, announces the Georgian Civil Aviation Agency.

Starting March 21 Georgia completely shut down air traffic in order to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

So far only "government-coordinated flights" have been carried out in the country that brought back Georgian citizens from coronavirus-hit countries.

The Georgian Civil Aviation Agency said that the decision to relaunch regular air traffic will be made following the recommendations of the health agencies. 

The agency calls on citizens to refrain from buying tickets until the date of the restoration of regular air traffic is announced.
