Qatar Airways Announces the Launch of Summer Flights to Tashkent, Uzbekistan

The latest addition to Qatar Airways’ summer schedule offer passengers more travel choices

 

Qatar Airways welcomes the new route to its global network of over 170 destinations and connects travellers looking for an exciting destination in Central Asia

DOHA, Qatar – Qatar Airways announces the latest addition to its summer schedule, launching four weekly flights to Tashkent, the capital of Uzbekistan, starting 2 June 2024 and bookable now. Tashkent is located at the heart of Central Asia, a region known for its rich history and diverse cultures shared with the neighbouring countries of Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, Tajikistan, and Kyrgyzstan.

 

The destination is the second city served by the national carrier of the State of Qatar in the Central Asian market following Almaty, Kazakhstan. With the new service operated by an Airbus A320 aircraft, passengers can enjoy seamless global connectivity to Tashkent through the Best Airport in the Middle East, Hamad International Airport, to over 170 destinations worldwide.

 

Qatar Airways Chief Commercial Officer, Mr. Thierry Antinori, said: “The launch of the new route to Tashkent is a testament to our commitment to continuously growing our network and expanding to new corners of the world. Tashkent provides our passengers travelling from Europe, the Middle East, and the Americas, with the opportunity to visit Uzbekistan and the Central Asian region, and explore the cultural wonders these destinations offer. Travellers flying with Qatar Airways can now avail the option to fly to Tashkent as their gateway to the region, and we look forward to future opportunities of growth in Central Asia.”

 

Uzbekistan offers a unique travel experience with its historical sites, stunning architecture and vibrant cultural experiences. Famous for its historical cities of Samarkand and Bukhara, travellers can explore and marvel at the Uzbek landscapes. This beautiful destination offers an authentic taste of hearty Uzbek cuisine, warm and welcoming local hospitality, and a unique blend of modern and traditional experiences.

 

Tashkent’s connectivity to Central Asia plays a vital role in strengthening cultural and economic ties between countries in the region and beyond. This expansion further solidifies Qatar Airways’ commitment to offering passengers as many seamless direct connections as possible.

 

Qatar Airways Privilege Club members will collect Avios on flights and can benefit from greater savings when paying for flights with a combination of cash and Avios, or Avios Max, when paying 100 per cent of the fare using Avios. Members can also spend Avios on shopping and dining at Qatar Duty Free, packages with Qatar Airways Holidays, cabin upgrades, and more.
