Routine Mashad-Dushanbe flight resumes

Mashad, Aug 13, IRNA – Tajik Air resumed regular flights to Iranian city of Mashad from Tajikistan’s capital city of Dushanbe and vice versa on Tuesday.

Mohammd-Baqer Qasemzadeh, the director of the airports of Khorasan Razavi province, told IRNA correspondent on Tuesday that the flights between the two cities will operate on Tuesdays and Fridays by a Boeing 767 airplane of Tajik Air.

Earlier, Tajik Air and Iran’s Aseman airlines used to operate between Mashad and Dushanbe. The flights stopped operating since last year. Therefore those intending to travel between Iran and Tajikistan had to use airports of third countries which caused higher costs and longer travel time as well.

Mashad’s Shahid Hasheminejad Airport is Iran’s second busiest airport after Tehran International Mehrabad Airport. Some 180 flights operate in the airport each day on average, which tend to increase to 250 flights in the peak season.
