Abu Dhabi Airports has welcomed the resumption of Turkmenistan Airlines’ biweekly flights between Ashgabat International Airport (ASB) and Abu Dhabi International Airport (AUH), connecting the two nation’s capitals with flights operating every Friday and Sunday.

 

Saoud Al Shamsi, Acting Chief Commercial Officer (ACCO) of Abu Dhabi Airports said: “The resumption of Turkmenistan Airlines’ flights to Abu Dhabi reflects the city’s status as a key destination and transit hub for business and leisure travelers, as well as our own commitment to deploying world-class smart travel solutions, relaxing lounge spaces, and attractive retail offerings.”

“This additional service is part of our strategy to attract new airlines to our network that will support tourism growth in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi. These flights are forecasted to attract around 20,000 passengers annually between the two cities, which will extend an opportunity to passengers between Abu Dhabi and Ashgabat to experience a convenient and entertaining travel experience through Abu Dhabi International Airport, and enjoy what Abu Dhabi has on offer as a leading destination for leisure and business,” added Al Shamsi.

Turkmenistan Airlines will operate the route using its Boeing 737-800 aircraft, which will employ a bi-class business and economy configuration. On Fridays, Flight 825 is scheduled to depart Ashgabat International Airport (ASB) at 13:00 local time, arriving at Abu Dhabi International Airport (AUH) at 15:30 local time before returning as Flight 826, departing AUH at 17:00 and arriving at ASB at 19:30. On Sundays, Flight 827 is scheduled to depart Ashgabat International Airport (ASB) at 07:50 local time, arriving at Abu Dhabi International Airport (AUH) at 10:20 local time before returning as Flight 828, departing AUH at 11:50 and arriving at ASB at 14:20.

The flights play a key role in our growth strategy and are designed to increase interconnectivity between both destinations. We look forward to welcoming business and leisure travelers aboard Turkmenistan Airlines.”
