TBILISI. April 23 (Interfax) - In light of the current epidemiological situation in Georgia and worldwide, the Georgian Civil Aviation Agency has extended restrictions on regular passenger flights, initially in place until May 10, until May 22, inclusive.

According to the agency, such a decision was adopted after the Georgian parliament endorsed the president's decree on Wednesday to prolong the state of emergency declared in the country due to Covid-19 pandemic until May 22.

"This date [May 22] may be changed depending on the epidemiological situation in the country," it said.

In accordance with a decision adopted by Georgia's interdepartmental coordination council for the fight against Covid-19 pandemic, Georgia suspended all regular passenger flights to and from other countries on March 21. The country is currently accepting only cargo flights and flights repatriating Georgian citizens from abroad.
