Flights to Turkmenistan’s capital are to take place once a week — on Tuesdays, with return flights organised on Wednesdays. A plane will leave Minsk at 23.40, arriving in Ashgabat at 06.40 (local time) — spending four hours in the air. The return flight is to leave at 07.40, landing in Minsk at 08.50 (local time).
The flight schedule ensures convenient transit routes via Minsk to Ashgabat from Western Europe and the CIS: Berlin, Warsaw, Vienna, Kaliningrad, Kiev, Milan, Moscow, Paris, Prague, Riga, St. Petersburg and Stockholm. Passengers from Ashgabat will be able to travel on to Amsterdam, Warsaw, Vienna, Kaliningrad, Kiev, Moscow, Prague, Rome, St. Petersburg, Stockholm and Frankfurt via the Belarusian capital.
The flight is to be serviced by a Boeing-737-500, offering economy and business classes.
