Tajik national air carrier, Tajik Air, plans to resume domestic flights en route Dushanbe – Khorog – Dushanbe soon.
The airline is expected to resume flights to Khorog, the capital of the Gorno Badakhshan Autonomous Region (GBAO), Aziz Khairulloyev, a spokesman for Tajik Air, said.
According to him, Tajik Air will use helicopter Mi-8 to operate flights to Khorog, which is currently in transportation isolation because of recent heavy snowfalls.
A ticket for the flight reportedly costs 615.00 somoni.
Tajik Air suspended flights on this air route in October last year. Before that, the flights to Khorog were carried out by a sole remaining AN-28 in the Tajik Air’s fleet.
On July 8, 2015, a group of citizens released an open letter asking President Emomali Rahmon to assist in resolving the issue of streamlining Dushanbe – Khorog – Dushanbe flights. (News.tj/Business World Magazine)
