Published: 7 February, 2018

A large number of tourists, traveling to southeastern Asia, stop for some time in Tashkent. If before the transit travelers spent waiting time at the airport, now they will have the opportunity to be acquainted with Uzbekistan and taste the modern eastern life.

The waiting time for transit flights can last from two hours to two days. With a long transit gap, you can get to the city. However, in fact, it happens that the traveler does not have enough information about sightseeing, restaurants, and interesting places of the city.

State Committee of Tourism Development jointly with Tashkent International Airport named after Islam Karimov decided to tackle this problem. In January this year, they introduced technology to provide sightseeing services for transit passengers.
