Dushanbe and Baku are planning to set up direct flights. This was announced by the Ambassador of Tajikistan to Azerbaijan Rustam Soli at an event dedicated to the 30th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries.

According to the diplomat, the authorities of the two countries are discussing the process of opening a direct flight connecting the two capitals.

In addition, new opportunities are being explored to increase trade between Tajikistan and Azerbaijan.

“There is great potential for increasing trade between the two countries. I think that the opening of a direct flight will also increase trade,” Soli said.

Earlier it became known that Tajikistan will resume air communication with India and Iran. Flights will resume after a two-year break associated with the coronavirus pandemic.

“After a two-year break due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Tajikistan will resume flights on the routes Dushanbe-Delhi-Dushanbe, Dushanbe-Nursultan-Dushanbe, and Dushanbe-Tehran-Dushanbe with a schedule of two flights per week,” reports the Civil Aviation Agency of Tajikistan.

Somon Air has already started carrying passengers to and from Delhi. It is known that Iran Air will operate flights to Tehran, but the exact date of the first flight has not yet been specified.

Additionally, Tajikistan will increase the number of regular flights to Almaty, Dubai, Istanbul, Tashkent, and several Russian cities soon. The number of flights to Kazakhstan will increase sometime from May 1 to early June.
