Affordable and Enjoyable Flights to Uzbekistan

Getting to Uzbekistan

Most of the international travelers headed for Uzbekistan land at the Tashkent International Airport, the main international airport of the country. This airport caters to over 2 million passengers every year, with over 1,000 passengers per hour. This is the second largest international airport in Central Asia, next to Almaty International Airport located in Kazakhstan. Two other international airports, Bukhara International Airport and Samarkand International Airport also cater to commercial international carriers.

Airports

Uzbekistan has nine other domestic airports with regularly scheduled service so as to accommodate those that travel for both business and pleasure. These airports bear the names of the cities in which they reside: Andizhan, Fergana, Karshi, Namangan, Navoiy, Nukus, Termez, Urgench and Zarafshan.

Airlines

Flights into Uzbekistan are not many, nor are they easy to accomplish. You will likely touch ground a few times, possibly switching planes each time. Russia's Aeroflot, Air France, British Airways, Korean Air, Germany's Lufthansa and Turkish Airlines all provide connecting service from most major airlines into Uzbekistan. Uzbekistan Airlines is the main airlines to provide domestic service to airports within the country. Most domestic flights will originate or end in Tashkent, though a few will hop between cities that are commonly traveled to.

Other Money-Saving Tips

As Uzbekistan is not a well-traveled country, there is not enough competition to drive the costs down. There are two methods that will usually result in lower costs. If you can plan way ahead, the further in advance that you book, the more likely you are to get a decent rate. You will also be able to pick and choose your connecting flights with more care, possibly avoiding overnight layovers and extended waiting times. The other method is to wait to the last minute. Your travel plans would need to be extremely flexible. Basically, you keep a bag packed and the minute you search for a last minute fare that is available, you can book it. Airlines do this in order to fill those flights that are not full enough to be profitable. It can be an advantage to the traveler on a budget, but also a real 'hit and miss' prospect. Uzbekistan is another of those countries that is not accustomed to a high level of tourist traffic, so your best bet might be to make 'in country' travel arrangements with a travel agent that can get you through the 'red tape' and manage to get you where you want to be, when you want to be there.

In Closing

Uzbekistan is a country that is still somewhat lost in time. Western influence is slowly seeping into the larger cities, but most of Uzbekistan is still living with ancient traditions and an inherent connection with their ancestors. Take a step back in time in Uzbekistan. You will enjoy every minute of it!

Uzbekistan proudly boasts of three of the most recognizable and treasured cities in Central Asia: Samarkand, Bukhara and Khiva. Bringing to mind snake-like desert caravans, whirling curved knives and architecture that just seems to rise right out of the sand, these three cities awaken dreams of other worlds. Bukhara brings together all the best that is Uzbekitstan-silk from Margilon, ceramics from Rishton, coverlets, suzani, from Shakhrisabz and everything in between. It is an exceptionally well preserved holy city with divine B and Bs, dazzling medressas, and a most captivating history. If you've tired of the endless sites in the 'big-three', then you might consider traveling to Nurata for a change of pace. Nurata features a primeval fortress and an array of virtually unknown, but incredible natural attractions. You will find alluring bazaars throughout Uzbekistan, presenting the best opportunities to pick up souvenirs and gifts.
