Munich Airport welcomes a new flight connection: From now on, Uzbekistan Airways will be offering two weekly nonstop flights from Munich to the Uzbek capital Tashkent. Every Friday and Sunday, flights from Tashkent arrive in Munich at 9:20 a.m., and return to Uzbekistan at 10:45 a.m. The flights are operated by a modern Airbus A320neo.
The new service is likely to be of interest to both business travelers and tourists: The country is most famous for its mosques and mausoleums along the Silk Road. Its colorful cities, such as Samarkand and Bukhara, are also attractive. In addition, Uzbekistan Airways offers a regional network with connecting flights that allow passengers to discover other destinations along the ancient Silk Road.
Munich Airport remains one of the best-connected airports in Europe. According to a recent study by OAG (Official Airline Guide), a leading institution for data collection in the aviation and travel industry, the Bavarian aviation hub takes sixth place in Europe in terms of the number and quality of flight connections.
Munich Airport continued its recovery in first quarter of 2023, with around seven million passengers counted between January and March. This was 70% more than in the same period of the previous year. Due to the restrictions on international travel as a result of the pandemic, only a little over four million passengers had used Munich Airport for a flight in the first quarter of 2021.
In the course of the wage disputes in the public service sector, the trade union ver.di is again calling on employees at Munich Airport to take part in a warning strike. Due to all-day strikes, there will be no regular passenger and cargo traffic at Munich Airport on Sunday, March 26, and Monday, March 27, 2023.
