Uzbekistan Airways has 2 London to Amritsar Flights via Tashkent a week. All flights to Amritsar have a stopover at Tashkent of between 2 hours and 2.5 hours. There is also a once weekly flight London Heathrow to Delhi.
Uzbekistan offers good value for money flight tickets. The service offered is very basic but it gets you to Amritsar on time, normally punctually and reliably.
Tashkent, the capital of Uzbekistan is an old airport. Passengers normally get off and board the same aeroplane. In our experience, passengers appreciate this stop over since it gives them a bit of a break, they can stretch their legs and visit the toilet. Parents with children value the stop over because it allows the children to let off a bit of steam and run around the airport lounge.
There is no entertainment on board so our suggestion is to take a good book or magazine to read, your mp3 player to listen to music, some activity or games for the kids or just go to sleep! Food is served in good quantity - both Indian vegetarian and Indian non vegetarian. Please make your request for your meal preference when you book your tickets with Amritsar Travel.
You do not have to reconfirm the outward date since we at Amritsar Travel will do this for you but you must reconfirm your return date. It is important to reconfirm your return flight in India at least 3 days before your return travel. If you do not, the airline is entitled to cancel your return seat.
The details of the airline offices - addresses and telephone numbers are provided in our special Amritsar Travel wallet. You can reconfirm on the phone without visiting the offices. There are convenient offices in Amritsar, Jallandhar and Delhi. If you need to change your tickets then you must go to these airline offices. Any changes can only be made in India.
Baggage Allowance is 30 KG plus 5KG hand luggage making a generous 30KG.
Uzbekistan Airways has different types of economy class tickets names after the duration of travel. One Month tickets are strictly non refundable. Four Month, One Year and Business Class tickets are partially refundable. You are allowed date change on a four month ticket and multiple date changes on a one year ticket. Other terms and conditions apply so please ask us if you have any other questions about the terms and conditions of the ticket. Although many passengers go for a One Month Ticket, we have found from experience that it is in your best interest to go for a Four Month ticket in case your plans change.....and we believe us they do! Since you may book months in advance, a lot can happen between booking a ticket and flying out. We do not want you to lose the full value of the one month ticket so it is best to pay the extra £20 or so and go for a four month ticket at the time of booking. Cancellation charges do apply but you will normally get approximately 70% of your money back.
