Direct regular flights of the S7 Airlines from Moscow's Domodedovo airport to Samarkand will be carried out on Mondays.

Departure from Moscow will be at 21:35 (GMT 5+), arriving to Samarkand airport - at 03:35 the next day. The return flight from Samarkand will be carried out on Tuesdays at 05:05, arriving in Moscow - at 07:20. Flights will be carried out on modern comfortable Airbus A320 airplanes.

“Travelers more and more often tend to choose former Soviet republics, including Uzbekistan, as unusual destinations for excursions. Samarkand will be interesting for passengers from Moscow as one of the oldest cities in the world. The city is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site thanks to the preserved XV century architectural monuments,” Commercial Director of the S7 Group Igor Veretennikov noted.
