Georgian air carrier wants to recover compensation from Russia for suspension of air traffic between countries. Georgian Airways estimated the damage at 25 million US dollars.

According to TASS, the company is preparing a lawsuit in the European Court against the Ministry of Transport of Russia. The airline considers the flight ban unreasonable. The reasons are allegedly arrears to Russian air navigation in the amount of 800 thousand US dollars and dissatisfaction with the Georgian Airways aviation security program.

The latter, according to the carrier, raised questions only in Russia. The company regularly undergoes a safety audit of the International Air Transport Association. There are no complaints about the Georgian Airways flight safety system in Europe.

Ban on air traffic started acting from 8 of July. Now you can get to Georgia only through neighboring states. The ban on flights of Georgian airlines will last until they provide a program aviation security and their audit.

The president of Russia imposed a ban on flights to Georgia after protests in Tbilisi. Now we are considering a proposal to launch from the airports of Baku, Yerevan and Turkish Trabzon free buses to Georgia for Russian tourists.
