According to Ural Airlines, the flights from Moscow to Dushanbe and Khujand will be operated twice a week.


Utair says on its official website that it will begin operating flights from Moscow to Dushanbe on June 30. Air ticket for the flight from Moscow to Dushanbe reportedly costs from 13,600 Russian rubles (equivalent to approximately 2,018 somoni), while the price for air ticket for the flight from Dushanbe to Moscow is higher – from 15,840 Russian rubles (equivalent to approximately 2,350 somoni).
