TajikistanТs Somon Air suspends flights to 7 Russian destinations
DUSHANBE, Apr 2 (PRIME) -- Tajik airline Somon Air has suspended flights to seven Russian destinations after a telegram from RussiaТs Federal Air Transport Agency, an official of the airline told PRIME on April 1.
The list of cities comprises Yekaterinburg, Irkutsk, Kazan, Krasnodar, Krasnoyarsk, St. Petersburg and Sochi.
On December 23, Russia suspended flights of Somon Air to regions as Tajik authorities failed to coordinate flights of Russian airline Yamal to Tajikistan from the Moscow RegionТs Zhukovsky airport. In response, the Tajik authorities cancelled flights of RussiaТs Urals Airlines from Russian cities of Krasnodar, Ufa, Chelyabinsk, and Krasnoyarsk.
In March 2018, the conflict between the air authorities reemerged with mutual suspension of flights and route prolongation. RussiaТs Transport Ministry expects Tajikistan to solve air travel issues by Thursday, Minister Maxim Sokolov said earlier.
