Uzbekistan is set to hold a major global aviation forum on February 19-20, a source in the government said. Today, major market players have been invited to the forum, and many of them have responded and booked places. It’s already safe to say that many large international companies will come to Uzbekistan to learn more about the market, about the airports and the services. The vent will help improve logistics, provide additional amenities for passengers, and of course, reduce air prices due to the arrival of new carriers, including low-cost airlines," the source said.
It added that the Uzbekistan authorities are hoping that after the event a number of low-cost airlines will be interested in flights to Uzbekistan, and operators may also want to take the local airports for management.
