In this article, you will find information about what is inside Kutaisi Airport, how to get from there to Tbilisi, Batumi, Kutaisi, the current schedule of flights, and other useful details.
General Information and Useful Facts
Kutaisi Airport is also known as Kopitnari, and its full name is “David Agmashenebeli (David the Builder) Kutaisi International Airport.” It was renovated and opened in 2012.
The distance from Kopitnari to the city of Kutaisi is only 14 km, making it very quick and easy to reach from and to the airport.
The main feature of the airport is that it serves low-cost airlines, making flights less expensive. Currently, it collaborates with airlines such as Wizz Air, Fly Arna, Belavia, Ak-Air Georgia, Red Wings, and others. Wizz Air offers convenient and affordable flights to Europe and the Emirates, which I enjoy doing 3-4 times a year.

Where to Withdraw Lari and Buy a SIM Card at Kutaisi Airport
After passing passport control upon arrival, you will find currency exchange offices, ATMs, and SIM card sales.
Currency can be withdrawn in dollars and lari; they accept all cards. There is a 3 lari fee plus your bank’s commission for each card withdrawal. The exchange rate is not favorable, so withdraw only the amount needed to get to the city; you can exchange the rest upon arrival.
Buying SIM cards here is not recommended as their price soars 3-4 times higher compared to the offices of the same operators. The cost, including internet for a week, can reach up to 70 lari. The airport provides free Wi-Fi, so you can order a taxi to the city and buy a SIM card there. Operators include Selfie (cheaper but lower quality), Silknet, and Magti. Georgia cannot boast low internet prices, so be prepared for rates higher than those in your home country.
