According to him, they asked Somon Air to cut fares on charter flights from Russia to Tajikistan and the new rates went into effect in early December last year.

“Tickets for the charter flights from Russia to Tajikistan, previously 39,000-40,000 Russian rubles, now cost 26,000-27,000 Russian rubles,” Subhonzoda said.

He further noted that they had also asked foreign airlines to lower fares on flights operated to Tajikistan.

Subhonzoda also noted that negotiations with the Russian Federation and China on resumption of regular air traffic are still under way.

“Last year, Tajik national air carrier Tajik Air and Somon Air carried a total of 300,000 passengers both on regular and charter flights,” Civil Aviation Agency top manager said.

Recall, Tajikistan began to repatriate its nationals strained in foreign countries due to the coronavirus pandemic from June 25, 2020.

To-date, Tajikistan has resumed regular flights to Dubai (United Arab Emirates), Istanbul (Turkey) and Tashkent (Uzbekistan).

_: Asliddin Melikov, the Deputy Director-General of Dushanbe International Airport, remarked this at a meeting with reporters in Dushanbe on February 15.

According to him, Sherafgan Khojaqulov and his two accomplices are charged with fraud.

“They received 109,000 somonis from several citizens for purchase of air tickets for flights from Dushanbe to the Russian Federation but they deceived the citizens,” said Melikov. “One of accomplices – Jamshed Solomov – has been detained while the second one is on the run.”

He also noted that reports that Khojaqulov had committed suicide due to delays in the payment of salary did not correspond to the facts.

According to Melikov, the salary was paid to Khojaqulov. “In total, he was paid 4,000 somonis during the pandemic. All documents are at the disposal of the Transportation Prosecutor's Office,” DIA officials noted.

Recall, Sherafgan Khojaqulov committed suicide in his workplace on October 26, 2020.

Sherafgan’s uncle, Jamshed Davlatov, says he saw his nephew for the last time on October 23. “He was upset that salaries were delayed and he was kicked out of a rented apartment. He had not received salary for nine months” Davlatov told Asia-Plus in an interview on October 26
