I couldn't make pictures of security check and passport control, so we skip to the Duty free and boarding area.
 



I had 2 hours until the boarding will start, then I decided to try Georgias lounge.

Very basic lounge, offered Xachapuri, some georgians cheese, ham, breads, soft and hot drinks.

My plane arrived 15 min before boarding.

The new operations to deboard the aircraft because of the Covid 19 is row by row, so the deboard took a lot of time.

Conclusion

So after a long year without vacation, I Vaccinated finally and decided to fly to Batumi.
I chose to fly with Israir because of the option to cancel the flight (at an additional cost) and get a refund of the flight ticket.
Israir airlines made a lot of rescue flights around Europe at 2020 to take Israeli people back to the country, they also made a lot of cargo flights around the world (with stopovers) with their a320's.
This year (2021) they made a lot of summer flights around europe, UAE and Seychells island.
All of their flights operate as same as low cost flights, Baggage, seats, meals At an additional cost.
The pitch between the seats is very tight, do not choose to fly Israir for long flights (more than 3 hours).
Israir started to make Buisness, economy class flights just to UAE, the other destinations only offered in economy class seating.
Batumi airport offer very basic services, small airport with small duty free and lounge.

Hope you enjoyed this FR. Thanks for reading.

    Hello Roy!

    Thanks for this report!

    The trip starts on my way to BUS airport.

    Actually I didn’t know anything about Batumi. I made some research after reading your FR and I can see that it’s a very interesting place! In fact, I had seen the statue of Ali and Nino somewhere on the Internet (such a sad story!), but I didn’t know it was in Batumi.

    Very basic lounge, offered Xachapuri

    I am in love with Xachapuri after some more googling. lol

    We made a long descend for landing.

    I love those long, slow descents. Usually so scenic!

    the deboard took a lot of time.

    Yeah, same here. You’d better not be in a hurry!

    Thank you for reading my FR :)

    Thank YOU for sharing! Batumi has just entered my bucket list. :D

    Stay safe!
