Somon Air lowers passenger fares only on charter flights with both-direction passenger loading

10 months ago Web Desk 0

According to the Somon Air press center, the company has lowered passenger fares on 11 charter flights. Four such charter flights have already been operated.


The passenger fares on the charter flight Dushanbe – St Petersburg were reportedly lowered on August 23 and passenger fares on the charter flights Dushanbe-Moscow and Dushanbe-Surgut were lowered on August 25.


A ticket for the charter flight Dushanbe-Moscow with both-direction passenger loading, previously 395 euros, now costs 300 euros.


Meanwhile, a source within the Tajik Embassy in Moscow says Russia’s air carrier Ural Airlines has also begun operating charter flights from Russia to Tajikistan.


Until the end of August, it is expected to operate nine charter flights with both-direction passenger loading, the source added.


Persons wanting to travel from Russia to Tajikistan by these charter flights will have to show a negative coronavirus test completed within 72 hours before departure.


Recall, Tajik authorities have suspended all international flights. Tajikistan closed all its airports at midnight on March 19-20 due to the coronavirus concerns. Only charters flights to repatriate Tajik nationals stranded in foreign countries due to the coronavirus crisis have been operated so far. Tajik air carriers will continue operating charter flights to Russia until regular flights are resumed.


Somon Air is the first private airline in Tajikistan with an office headquartered in Dushanbe. The airline operations are based at Dushanbe International Airport. The airline started operating on February 5, 2008 with regular flights to Moscow and Dubai. Somon Air also serves as the official carrier of President of the Republic of Tajikistan and other Tajikistan high-ranking officials.
