Uzbekistan Airways begins operating its flights to Southeast Asia on former air routes

16 Jul 2019

Uzbekistan Airways has halved the flight time on its routes to Southeast Asia due to the opening of Pakistan’s airspace for commercial traffic.

Note that after the closure of the airspace over Pakistan, Uzbekistan Airways flew bypassing the territory of this state, and therefore the flight time for its aircraft was increased. For example, if the flight time bypassing the Tashkent – Delhi route was 04:55 h, Delhi – Tashkent – 05:30 h, now this flight arrives from Tashkent to Delhi in 02:50 h., From Delhi international airport (named after Indira Gandhi) to Tashkent International Airport (named after Islam Karimov) the flight time is 2 hours and 30 minutes. Flight time has also decreased on flights on the following air routes: Tashkent – Bangkok – Tashkent, Tashkent – Amritsar – Tashkent, Tashkent – Kuala Lumpur – Tashkent, Tashkent – Jakarta – Tashkent and Tashkent – Mumbai – Tashkent.
