Tashkent Receives First Flight from Kabul
Uzbekistan actively participates in the implementation of projects in various sectors of the economy of Afghanistan. Another proof of this was the first direct flight from Kabul to Tashkent that took place on November 29.
Earlier, passengers traveled from Tashkent to Afghanistan via Istanbul or Dubai, spending 17-32 hours on it, and the flight on the new flight takes only 1.5 hours. The new route is comprehensively convenient for passengers, saves them time and money.
The first flight on the route Kabul-Tashkent was made by the airline Kam Air (Afghanistan). Direct flights have opened new prospects for cooperation between the airlines of the two countries. They reached agreements on the training of Afghan civil aviation pilots in the Flight School of the NAK of Uzbekistan, as well as on maintenance of the Kam Air planes at the Uzbekistan Airways Technics.
Flights from Afghanistan to Tashkent will be carried out two days a week, on modern liners. The flight schedule is designed so that it is convenient for Afghan passengers to fly connecting flights to Germany, Great Britain and other countries, and also to travel around Uzbekistan, which, in particular, is facilitated by the optimal interval between flights to Samarkand, Bukhara and Urgench.
“We are proud to cooperate with such a reliable and technically equipped airline as Uzbekistan Airways,” says Zemaray Kamgar, head of Kamgar Group. “This flight testifies to the friendship between our peoples and the prospects of partnership. We are grateful to the leadership of Uzbekistan for this opportunity.”
