The Russian Ministry of Transport threatens to take inductive measures against Tajikistan over a ban on Yamal Airlines flights to Dushanbe from Zhukovsky Airport.
The Ministry of Transport of Russian will take all necessary measures to make the Tajik authorities coordinate flights to Dushanbe from Zhukovsky Airport, Russian Minister of Transport Maxim Sokolov said.
He noted that the sides could conduct additional negotiations over flights from Zhukovsky Airport.
“Either negotiations or appropriate inductive measures,” the Russian minister said.
Tajik civil aviation authorities proposed Russia’s Yamal Airlines to operate flights out of Zhukovsky Airport to the Tajik southern city of Kulob instead of Dushanbe, but Yamal Airlines rejected the proposal.
Dushanbe in December 2016 banned Yamal Airlines flights to Tajikistan out of Zhukovsky Airport and Moscow suspended flights of Tajik private air carrier, Somon Air, to the Russian regions. The ban included flights of the airline to all Russian cities, except for Moscow and St. Petersburg.
Tajik and Russian authorities reached an agreement aimed at resolving a dispute that has prevented some civilian flights between their countries at a meeting of the Tajik-Russian commission for economic cooperation that too place in Dushanbe on January 27. Somon Air was allowed to resume its flights to four Russian cities – Krasnoyarsk, Krasnodar, Ufa, and Orenburg – beginning on February 3.
Meanwhile, Russia’s Yamal Airlines will resume its flights to Tajikistan during the summer from Zhukovsky International Airport in the Moscow region. (News.tj/Business World Magazine)
