S7 Airlines launches flights to Tashkent
S7 Airlines, a member of the global airline alliance oneworld®, will launch a new flight route between Moscow and Tashkent, the capital of Uzbekistan, on 3 August 2018. Tickets for flights on the new route are already on sale.
The flights will depart from Domodedovo airport on Tuesdays and Fridays. Flights will leave Moscow at 05:30 and land at Tashkent airport at 11:30 local time. The return flights leave at 13:00 and arrive at Domodedovo Airport at 15:20.
From 4 October 2018, S7 Airlines will add new flights to Taskhent on Thursdays and Sundays, bringing the total to four flights per week. Modern and comfortable Airbus A320 aircraft will be used for the flights: these are designed to transport 8 passengers in business class and 150 passengers in economy class.
Tashkent is Central Asia’s largest city, and its architecture is strikingly rich in contrasts. Here you will find a functioning Catholic Cathedral and Lutheran Church side by side, as well as buildings typical of any major Soviet city, together with some buildings of the old eastern city, which survived the earthquake in the late 1960s.
“In recent years, tourism within the CIS has become increasingly popular. Tashkent has the potential to become a popular gastro-tourism destination. Visitors will enjoy discovering the Uzbek capital, as they search for the secrets of dishes like plov, laghman, joshpara and shurpa. They will be able to spend hours in the unique oriental bazaars, packed with aromatic spices, dried fruits and teas. The best of these are considered to be the Eski-Juva — the oldest city bazaar, and the Chorsu market”, says Igor Veretennikov, Commercial Director of the S7 Group.
The new route will be popular with passengers from Uzbekistan, whom often travel to Moscow for work or to visit friends and family. Passengers will also be able to experience the convenience of transferring to flights to other destinations in S7’s wide network, without leaving Domodedovo airport
