Baku, Azerbaijan, Nov. 7
Russia's Ural Airlines will resume flights from Volgograd city to Uzbekistan’s Tashkent in December, Director General of Volgograd International Airport Sergey Dmitriev said, TASS reported.
“The flights will be operated twice a week on the Airbus A320 by the Ural Airlines,” he said.
He noted that the Volgograd International Airport acts as one of the nearest Russian regions to Uzbekistan in the south-east direction.
He added that for now, road transport or railway is used by passengers in this direction, which takes a long time and the route isn’t safe.
Planes from Volgograd flew to Tashkent in 2015, but then the flights were stopped.
This year, the Ural Airlines already resumed flights in the directions of Moscow-Qarshi, St. Petersburg-Urgench, St. Petersburg-Bukhara, St. Petersburg-Fergana, Yekaterinburg-Samarkand and Sochi-Tashkent.
