May 12, 2017
Aviator is reportedly considering the expansion of its rotary services in Eastern Europe. According to a 10 May 2017 news article published at the European Business Air News (EBAN) website, the Tbilisi, Georgia-based private aviation operator has been successful in providing these services thus far.
The decision by Aviator’s management to expand its Georgian operations is largely attributable to growing demand for the newly launched services. According to EBAN: “Aviator has had an encouraging start to operations using a King Air C90GTX, which is transporting corporate and leisure travellers to popular sports in Georgia and Armenia.”
EBAN quotes Vako Tchilashvili, Aviator’s Sales and Marketing Manager, as saying: “Aviator is the latest product of the fastest-growing and largest hospitality holding company in Georgia, Adjara Group. We fly one factory-new King Air, but due to growing demand, our team is already working on fleet expansion, and we are planning to add mid-size passenger helicopters for regional flights in order to become more flexible and reach places where there are no runways and airports. We are also considering jet aircraft for longer-range international flights.”
Aviator’s top brass is particularly keen to point out the suitability of the company’s rotary services to the prevailing market needs. EBAN quotes Tchilashvili as emphasising: “The King Air aircraft suits our needs I the conditions we encounter, such as the mountainous landscape of Georgia.”
Tchilashvili goes on to explain: “The three most popular routes for now are from Tbilisi to the seaside resorts of Batumi, to the ski resort Mestia and to the Armenian capital Yerevan, which has good economic links with Georgia. We are the pioneers of private aviation and air taxi services in Georgia, and we are at the promotion stage as things stand. Demand for our services is growing significantly, and we already have flight bookings for the summer period.”
