New link connects Singapore directly to Central Asia

4/5/2014 8:44:33 AM

Singapore Changi Airport welcomed the arrival of Uzbekistan Airways, marking the launch of Singapore’s first direct air link to Central Asia.

The national carrier of the Republic of Uzbekistan will operate a twice-weekly service between Tashkent and Singapore, through a circular routing with Kuala Lumpur, utilising a 247-seat Boeing 767-300 aircraft in a two-class configuration.

Uzbekistan Airways and Tashkent are respectively the second carrier and second new city link this year for Changi Airport. This follows the launch of a service to Guiyang by Lucky Air in January.

Changi Airport Group’s senior vice-president for market development, Lim Ching Kiat, said, “We are delighted to welcome Uzbekistan Airways to Changi with its twice-weekly service from Tashkent to Singapore. This marks a significant milestone for Singapore and Changi Airport, as it establishes the first air bridge between Singapore and Central Asia, reaffirming our status as an important air hub linking Central Asia and the Asia-Pacific region.’’
