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.
