Coyne Airways adds to capacity between Europe and Tbilisi

June 24 - From July 1st, Coyne Airways is adding a second weekly Boeing 747-400 freighter service to its hub in Tbilisi.

In addition to its existing flight every Monday from London Stansted and Cologne to Tbilisi, Coyne has signed an agreement with Jade Cargo for further B747-400 capacity each Wednesday from Frankfurt to the Georgian capital.

The new service will depart Frankfurt at 2300 and arrive in Tbilisi at 0500 local time and Coyne will offer trucking connections throughout continental Europe as well as the UK, allowing a Tuesday evening close-out in most cases. The Thursday morning arrival allows freight to be cleared in Tbilisi and subsequently trucked to Yerevan and Baku before the weekend.

Coyne launched its first B747F service to Tbilisi in December 2006. From its Tbilisi hub, the airline operates regional all-cargo flights to Aktau, Atyrau and Uralsk in Kazakhstan as well as truck services to Baku in Azerbaijan and Yerevan in Armenia. Its Caspian network has just increased further with new services from Tbilisi to Ashgabat and Turkmenbashi in Turkmenistan.

As well as oil and gas equipment for exploration, Coyne regularly transports the basic products and personal effects needed to support the large international teams working in the region.
