Last Updated(Beijing Time):2010-01-05 11:26

Georgian Airways will perform direct charter flights from its capital Tbilisi to Russian capital Moscow on Jan. 8-10, the Interfax news agency reported on Monday.

Both the Russian Transport Ministry and the Federal Civil Aviation Agency Rosaviatsia have given permission for charter flights from Tbilisi to Moscow and St. Petersburg, Nino Giorgobiani, the spokeswoman for Georgian Airways, was quoted by Interfax as saying.

The company will run Tbilisi-Moscow-Tbilisi charter flights on Jan. 8-10, she said, adding that the decision on charter flights to St. Petersburg on Jan. 9-10 will be made later.

She said Georgian Airways might also do charter flights to Moscow on Jan. 16, 20 and 22 if allowed.

"We hope talks will be held soon between Russian and Georgian officials on the resumption of regular flights between the two countries," Giorgobiani said.

Direct flights between Tbilisi and Moscow were halted in 2006 over a spy row between the former Soviet neighbors. The flights were resumed for a short time in 2008, but were suspended again after a five-day war between the two countries in August the same year.

The Russian Transportation Ministry had earlier approved charter flights from Tbilisi to Moscow on Dec. 29-30, but Georgian Airways later announced that the dates for the flights would be postponed for at least a week.
