Uzbekistan Today (English) - - FRONT PAGE - Igor Ch­ernykh

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.”
