Uzbekistan will reopen 10 airports to foreign carriers
To stimulate the recovery of tourism, from next August 1st
Uzbekistan will reintroduce a regime of open skies in 10 national airports starting from next August 1st, to boost the arrivals by foreign tourists, the Ministry of Transport has announced today. The new regime will allow all foreign carriers to fly from their countries to Uzbekistan, and from there to take off again to another destination in a third country. There will be no restrictions on the number of connections, and the measure, unless changes caused by the coronavirus pandemic, will last for two years and will also affect international cargo flights. Karshi, Nukus, Termez, Bukhara, Navoi and Urgench are among the ten designated airports.
The Uzbek government had adopted already last year a series of measures to encourage tourism. The Central Asian Nation plans to attract more than nine million foreign tourists by 2025.
