“The one-year deal is expected to help stimulate the economies of both countries, especially as Georgia has become a travel destination of great interest for Thai tourists due to its rich history, distinct architecture, culture and impressive landscapes,” said Kla Nuangnara, Chief Financial Officer for Thai AirAsia X. “Thai AirAsia X is always ready to spread its wings to new markets and our entry into Georgia is very exciting. With strong partners and full support from the Georgian National Tourism Administration and local authorities, we are confident that our marketing plan to attract Georgian travelers to Thailand will be well received.”
Foreign visitors to Georgia have been allowed to enter the country without presenting a vaccination certification or COVID19 test result since 15 June 2022.
