Managing Director of the company's Georgian representation Samir Khalilov said that they are not a "discounter" company, the airline offers a full-service: food and drinks on board, business - class full service and an unprecedented offer for the Georgian market – a bus which will bring passengers free of charge to the airport from the city center.

According to Levan Elizbarashvili, the head of the Georgian representation of the Turkish airline "Pegasus" operating on the market, they will offer lower prices than Atlasjet and the company will not face a danger of losing passengers.
In his words, "Pegasus" has also considered a project of the transportation of passengers to the airport, however, it was removed from the agenda due to some risks.
However, Elizbarashvili speaks about positive sides of the project and says that some of the passengers may be satisfied with it.
