Tashkent, Uzbekistan, Apr. 5
By Demir Azizov – Trend:
Uzbekistan’s national airline, the Uzbekistan Airways, will carry out the first Tashkent-Dushanbe flight as soon as enough tickets are sold for the flight, the company’s press service told Trend.
The first flight, scheduled for April 4, was cancelled as a small number of tickets were sold.
“All the agreements reached to resume the Tashkent-Dushanbe flights are valid. Tickets for this flight are now being sold at ticket offices,” the Uzbekistan Airways said, adding the tickets sold for the April 4 flight also remain valid.
Tajikistan’s private airline Somon Air will operate the Dushanbe-Tashkent flights.
The flights between Uzbekistan and Tajikistan stopped in 1992 after the Tajik Civil War broke out.
In November 2016, a protocol was signed in Dushanbe to resume the flights between the capitals of the two countries in the first half of 2017.
