Uzbekistan Airways Tashkent Reviews
Oct 05, 2007
I flew on an Uzbekistan Airways direct flight from Tokyo to Tashkent. The word "direct" is misleading here, however. It stops at Kansai Int'l Airport in Osaka before flying to Taskent. In view of the heightened security at airports all over the world, the little transit at Kansai Int'l Airport can be time-consuming (stops for about an hour). The positive side to this is that it makes a great stop for making last-minute shopping in Japan.
Uzbekistan Airways operates its flights between Tashkent and the Japanese cities of Tokyo and OSaka like a loop. So, when you board the plane at Tokyo-Narita, there are people flying in from Uzbekistan whose final destination is Osaka. This is probably due to their cost-saving measures.
Apart from that, flying on Uzbekistan Airways was not bad. The flight attendants were all very helpful and spoke excellent English. A few even spoke Japanese. In addition, you get rewarded by the view from the aircraft. When approached from the south (i.e. South Asia and Southeast Asia) or the east (i.e. East Asia), Central Asia is surrounded by formidable mountain ranges, and the view is spectacular on a clear sunny day.
