June 12, 2019, the Egyptian airline "Al Masriya Universal Airlines" on the Airbus-320 aircraft successfully carried out the first direct flight UJ4002 in the direction of "Tashkent – Sharm El Sheikh" with 170 passengers on board.
Upon arrival in Sharm El Sheikh, the passengers of the flight were solemnly met by the airport administration.
Previously, in order to carry out a flight from Uzbekistan to Egypt and back, citizens of the two countries were required to purchase a plane ticket with transfers through third countries, which created certain inconveniences.
Now, thanks to the reform of the aviation industry of Uzbekistan in accordance with the decree of the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan "On measures for the radical improvement of civil aviation of the Republic of Uzbekistan" in our country gradually creates conditions for the activities of foreign airlines in the domestic market, which allows you to open passenger flights on new routes.
Direct flights to Tashkent – Sharm El Sheikh are operated by the Egyptian airline Al Masriya Universal Airlines every Wednesday.
