Dec. 22, 2020

Dec. 21—Flights between Tajikistan's Dushanbe and Uzbekistan's Tashkent will most likely resume closer to spring, a source in the Tajikistan's government said, Trend reports referring to the Tajik media outlets.

According to the source, the difficult epidemiological situation due to the COVID-19 pandemic in both states does not allow the authorities to make a quick and final decision on this issue.

The parties discussed the possibility of resuming flights between Dushanbe and Tashkent from November 1 in mid-October, then it was decided to postpone this deadline until December 1, and then a new deadline was considered — January 1, 2021.

The Civil Aviation Agency under the government of Tajikistan said that it received the go-ahead from the Republican Headquarters for Countering the Spread of Coronavirus to resume flights to Tashkent.

"The Uzbek colleagues also have a corresponding decision, but the exact date of the start of flights is still unknown. Before the start of flights, it is necessary to clarify and determine all the points: which airlines will fly, the schedule, as well as issues related to the pandemic," the Agency noted.

Air traffic between the capitals of two states was suspended on March 16 of this year.

Currently, the passage of citizens at the land border has been partially resumed between Uzbekistan and Tajikistan. — Follow the author on Twitter: @romakayeva
