Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan have reached an agreement to enhance air travel connections between the two countries, as announced by the Ministry of Industry and Infrastructure Development of Kazakhstan.
Centrum Air, a subsidiary of My Freighter cargo airline, will commence regular flights between Tashkent and Almaty, marking a significant step towards increased competition, affordable ticket prices, and strengthened trade and tourism ties.
Beginning June 5, Centrum Air will operate three weekly flights on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, offering convenient travel options for passengers.
Having obtained a passenger transport permit in January and procured two Airbus A320-232 aircraft, Centrum Air aims to focus on affordable regional and international transportation, as well as the promotion of domestic tourism. The airline successfully conducted its inaugural passenger flight between Tashkent and Fergana on February 15.
In April, Centrum Air expanded its international operations by launching flights between Namangan and Jeddah. The carrier has recently announced the commencement of charter flights from Tashkent to Sharm el-Sheikh in Egypt.
This development aligns with the growing trend of expanding air connectivity in the region, with Batik Air of Indonesia also set to launch flights from Kuala Lumpur to Tashkent.
