The competition on the route to Georgia, a popular destination for Israeli tourists, is heating up under the influence of Chinese investors.

Myway, which began operating just a few months ago, will start the new route on June 28. The company owns two Boeing 737-800s and two similar planes have been ordered.

The airline is backed by Hualing Group, which was founded in 1988 in Urumqi, capital of Northwest China's Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region.
