    URGENCH INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT

    by DAO Written Feb 6, 2015


    The easiest way to get to and from Xorazm Viloyati is to use the modern Urgench Airport (UGC). From Khiva to here - you can find a ‘taxi’ from outside the West Gate and pay 20,000 SOM ($8 US) to get a ride. This is per journey – not per person. I negotiated this down slightly, but it was a private car going to Urgench anyway. The ‘official’ taxis wanted 50,000 SOM (about $20). I can assure you that for $20 you can book that transfer online! And there is no such thing as an ‘official’ taxi.

    The airport is brand new. Oddly it only has seating for about 20 people downstairs. They wait to closer to the departure times before they let people go up to the airport lounge. The lounge has a few snacks and drinks – no alcohol. You go through full security upstairs and downstairs. There are some vending machines downstairs.

    Soulless place, but it does the job.

    Only 3 airlines fly from here: S7 (Siberian) Airlines, Uzbekistan Airways and Aeroflot. There are flights to:
    Saint Petersburg, Moscow-Domodedovo, Tashkent, Vienna (begins 25 March 2015) and Volgograd. Seasonal charters serve Frankfurt and Milan-Malpensa.

    Urgench Airport is 35km (22 miles) Northeast of Khiva. It takes a good 30-45 minutes driving.
