SHOTA RUSTAVELI TBILISI INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT
The main international airport in Georgia
The first airport terminal building was constructed in 1952. Designed by the architect V. Beridze in the style of Stalinist architecture the building featured a floor plan with symmetric axes and a monumental risalit in the form of a portico. The two side wings featured blind arcades in giant order. A new terminal building was finished in 1990, designed in the International style.
The airport has a contemporary and functional design. It is designed to provide the optimum flow of both passengers and luggage from the parking lot to the planes, with a 25,000 m2 total usable area. There is scope for future expansions without interrupting terminal operations. Due to an increase in passenger demand, the new arrivals terminal was constructed and opened in August 2017. The new terminal occupies 12 000 sq. meters, it has a new two-exit boarding bridge, five new parking lots for planes, Three 150 meters long luggage carriers, and a new parking lot for 250 cars.
Now total capacity of the airport is 4.0 million passengers per year.
During 2016, the main runway of the airport was resurfaced and fitted with new navigation lights, which will improve the safety level of the runway.
