Fly Georgia (Tbilisi) could return to the skies by January 2014 albeit as a premium carrier. Central Asia Aero News writes that the airline, which suspended operations on October 16 after local authorities revoked its Air Operators Certificate, will also begin operating its own aircraft. Fly Georgia's two leased A319-100s and a A320 were seized in Brussels National in September over unpaid debts. However, Russian business newswire bizzinfo quotes Giorgi Kodua, Chairman of Professional Union of Georgia`s Civil Aviation, as saying the airline's operational problems were also caused by an alleged Iranian connection; a source of "severe irritation to Georgia's ally, the United States."
