Let us remind that regular flights between Türkiye and Turkmenistan were suspended in March 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic. Charter air connection was organized between the countries. Along with the “Turkmenistan” Airlines, charter flights were carried out by Turkish Airlines.
For now, “Turkmenistan” Airlines operates regular flights to Moscow (Russia), Kazan (Tatarstan, Russia), Frankfurt-am-Mein (FRG) and Dubai (UAE).
From October 15, “Turkmenistan” Airlines resumes flights to Belarus.
