Russia and Tajikistan agreed to lift restrictions on flights performed by the Tajik Somon Air
Somon Air is set to benefit as Russia and Tajikistan agreed to lift restrictions on flights performed by the Tajik Somon Air to the Russian regions
An agreement has been reached (with Russia’s Transport Minister - TASS) to lift embargo on flights performed by Somon Air to four cities - Krasnoyarsk, Krasnodar, Ufa and Orenburg. The commission side-stepped the decision on flights of the Yamal airline from Zhukovsky airport in Russia’s Moscow region to Tajikistan until the summer season.
Flights between Russia and Tajikistan were suspended in December 2016 as the Tajik airline Somon Air was banned to perform flights to Russian regions, except Moscow and St. Petersburg.
Somon Air Launches Flights Between Dushanbe and Lahore
Somon Air started flight operations between Dushanbe (Tajikstan) and Lahore and this is operated two weekly flights on every Monday and Friday.
Businessmen and traders of both the countries could directly reach Dushanbe and Lahore. In the past, passengers from Pakistan had to use Dubai route to reach Dushanbe by spending more than 15 hours. Now they would reach their destination in one hour and 40 minutes.
Since its formation, Somon Air has been primarily focusing on passenger service and transportation to Eastern Europe and other locations. Most flights to international destinations operate from Dushanbe. Somon Air will utilise its 737-300s on the route and will face no direct competition on this route.
Somon Air is set to benefit as Russia has removed their threat to suspend air travel to Tajikistan after a day of talks between the two countries' aviation authorities in Moscow on November 7. Following the talks, the two nations announced they would maintain and develop air travel, and in particular agreed on a roster of flights to Tajikistan from Moscow's new Zhukovsky airport, which has few airlines servicing it to date. In April 2016, Somon Air, Tajikistan’s first private airline and, currently, the country’s leading carrier, will launch services to two new countries in its summer schedule. The carrier will commence flights on the Dushanbe-Kabul route (around 400 km to the south) on 29 April; on the same day, Somon Air will inaugurate a service to Lahore, Pakistan (some 920 km southeast of Dushanbe). These two new destinations will expand Somon Air’s international scheduled route network to a total of eight countries. With its weekly Wednesday return flight to Kabul, the airline will compete against Afghanistan’s Kam Air. The route is particularly popular with Afghan nationals living or studying in Tajikistan, and also with transit passengers.
Somon Air on 6 May added Lahore (LHE) in Pakistan to its network. It now flies the 930-kilometre route twice-weekly (Mondays and Fridays) from Dushanbe (DYU) in Tajikistan and faces no direct competition. The airline will utilise its 737-300s on the route. This is the airline’s first service to Pakistan and follows last week’s launch of flights to Kabul in Afghanistan.
