About Travel – David the Builder Kutaisi International Airport
Kutaisi Airport, also known as David the Builder Kutaisi International Airport, is operated by United Airports of Georgia and was extensively renovated in 2011. It re-opened in September 2012.
Located 14 km (8.7 mi) west of Kutaisi in the western region of Imereti, the airport’s terminal building and air traffic control tower were designed by UNStudio.
Wizz Air, S7, Ural Airlines, Belavia, Atlasjet, Iraqi Airways and Georgian Airways operate international flights to Europe, Russia and Iraq, as well as domestic flights.
A significant growth in the number of passenger was recorded soon after the reopening of the airport in 2012, mainly due to Wizz Air operations linking Kutaisi with Polish and Ukrainian airports.
