We, for our part, aim to furnish the Georgian civil aviation sector with added impetus and contribute to the country’s economy, thanks to the know-how we’ve developed in the aviation sector. Around the world, only a number of leading airports -such as London’s Heathrow and Amsterdam’s Schipol- have the F Code runway. As TAV Airports, we are truly happy for Georgia for accomplishing a first with the new F Code runway in the region. I believe that this project will make a significant contribution to the aviation sector in Georgia.” “TAV Georgia is going to realize unprecedented investment in Tbilisi International Airport.
