Tehran-Dushanbe-Bishkek flights launched

Tehran-Dushanbe-Bishkek flights launched
Financial Tribune - A flight route from Iranian capital Tehran to Tajikistans capital Dushanbe and then to Kyrgyzstans capital Bishkek was launched on Monday by Iran's Varesh Airline, Irans Embassy in Tajikistan has announced.

As planned, the flight will leave Imam Khomeini International Airport in Tehran to Dushanbe and then to Bishkek at 4 a.m. local time on Mondays every week.

The return flight will be operated on the same day weekly at 1 p.m. local time from Bishkek and at 9:30 a.m. local time from Dushanbe, IRNA reported.

Mashhad-Dushanbe flights were launched last year.

Tajik Air resumed regular flights from Tajikistans capital city to Mashhad, the capital of Iran's northeastern Khorasan Razavi Province.

The flights between the two cities are operated on Tuesdays and Fridays by a Boeing 767 airplane of Tajik Air.

Earlier, Tajik Air and Irans Aseman airlines used to operate flights between Mashhad and Dushanbe. The flights stopped operating since 2018. As such, those intending to travel between Iran and Tajikistan had to use airports of third countries, which caused higher costs and longer travel time.

Mashhads Shahid Hasheminejad Airport is Irans second busiest airport after Tehrans Mehrabad International Airport. Some 180 flights operate in the airport every day on average, which tend to increase to 250 flights in the peak season.
