Speaking about the new launch, Ramachandran said: “We’re very pleased to be launching a new destination to Tashkent to support growing trade relations between the Middle East region and Uzbekistan. Uzbekistan is also a unique touristic destination to explore, especially following a year in which travel was restricted and avid travellers are eager to start exploring new places once again. Uzbekistan offers a unique nature, rich culture and long history, in addition to great outdoor activities.”

Vakhabov added: “Uzbekistan is without a doubt a destination worth visiting. It offers something new and different from other touristic destinations. Visitors can enjoy the outdoors, museums, story-telling architecture and tasty local cuisine, and interact with a new culture. But most importantly, we see this new service as an opportunity to grow trade relations and introduce new products and services that we believe are an added value to local markets. We thank Jazeera Airways for enabling this to happen and we look forward to welcoming its flights.”

The airline will be operating the new route with two flights per week. Passengers should review Covid-19 regulations before booking to ensure compliance with local regulations on vaccination and PCR test certificates.
