By Nigar Guliyeva – Trend:
Flag carrier airlines of Ukraine and Uzbekistan may resume direct flights between Kiev and Tashkent by the spring of 2018, the Uzbek media reported quoting Ukrainian Ambassador to Uzbekistan Yuri Savchenko.
On Dec. 12, delegations of the State inspectorate of Uzbekistan for supervision of aviation safety and the State Aviation Administration of Ukraine with the participation of representatives of the Ukraine International Airlines PJSC and the Uzbekistan Airways OJSC discussed issues in Tashkent regarding resumption of direct flights between Kiev and Tashkent, Savchenko wrote on his Facebook page.
At the initial stage, it is planned that each of the airline companies will carry out two flights a week, according to the ambassador.
Several years ago, direct flights between the two countries were operated by the Ukraine International Airlines PJSC and the Uzbekistan Airways OJSC.
However, controversial issues related to the distribution of passenger seats and airline tickets led to the cancellation of direct flights, and this turned out to be major inconvenience for citizens of both countries.
Passengers from Ukraine and Uzbekistan had to use services of other airlines offering transit routes.
