  • “The weather was clear as we took off from Tashkent at 8:00 am. Covering 228 kilometers in just 33 minutes, we were welcomed with a water arch, following aviation traditions. I am pleased to have completed the first flight, even if it was a technical one, to the newly renovated airport in Kokand”, said Amrillo Nutfullaev.
