Iran and Uzbekistan to launch new flight routes
Iran and Uzbekistan will open new flight routes between the two countries in the near future, Iranian Minister of Roads and Urban Development Abbas Akhoundi said on the sidelines of his meetings with Uzbek officials.
“Uzbek officials are calling for activating flight routes between Iran and Uzbekistan, which requires more efforts as this area is directly linked to tourism industry and visa issuance,” Mehr News cited Akhoundi as saying.
“We have managed to discuss many different issues and reach many agreements in this visit to Uzbekistan,” he recounted.
“Air connection for both passenger and freight flights is an important issue for both nations and fortunately Uzbekistan's First Deputy PM Achilbay Rahmatov was firm to develop air transportation between the two countries,” Akhoundi added.
