On 2 June, Qatar Airways’ first scheduled flight from Doha landed at Tashkent Airport.

According to Uzbekistan’s Ministry of Transport, the airline will initially operate four flights a week between Doha and Tashkent before introducing daily flights.

The opening of regular flights will make a significant contribution to the growth of tourism between the two countries as well as benefitting the development of multifaceted cooperation between the Persian Gulf and Central Asia.

In his presentation at the opening ceremony of the new air service at Tashkent International Airport, reported by Novosti Uzbekistana , Marwan Koleilat Senior Vice President, East Asia & South West Pacific at Qatar Airways, stated:

“Tashkent has become a new point in the geography of our route network. We are confident that this new route will not only strengthen ties between Qatar and Uzbekistan, but will also open doors for business, tourism and cultural exchange. Passenger flights on the route Doha-Tashkent-Doha will be carried out four times a week — on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays — on Airbus A320 aircraft. In the future, we are considering both increasing the frequency of flights to Tashkent and launching flights to Bukhara and Samarkand.”
