Turkmenistan Airlines was founded in 1992. Turkmenistan Airlines is the market leader on the UK - Birmingham and London to Amritsar Flights Route. All flights to Amritsar stopover at Ashgabat for between 90 minutes and 2 hours. There are 4 flights from Birmingham (BHX) and 2 flights from London Heathrow (LHR) to Amritsar (ATQ) via Ashgabat (ASB). There is also a once weekly flight Birmingham to Delhi and London Heathrow to Delhi.
So, if the last 3 things are not on your mind, Turkmenistan Airlines is the best deal for you if you want to fly from London Heathrow to Sri Guru Ram Das Ji International Airport.
Turkmenistan Airlines is its on time schedule. It is the favorite airline of punjabi's living in UK who want to fly directly to the punjabi heartland without going to the national capital of New Delhi.
Turkmenistan normally offers the best value for money flight tickets. With a great reputation for reliability it is now a very popular airline. The service offered is very basic but it gets you to Amritsar on time, normally punctually and reliably.
Ashgabat is a modern airport and there is a bar available. 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, visit the toilet. Parents with children value the stop over because it allows the children to let off a bit of air and run around the airport lounge. The journey time from UK to Ashgabat is around 6.5 hours with another 2.5 hour journey time from Ashgabat to Amritsar so the stop over at Ashgabat provides a convenient break.
There is no entertainment on board so our suggestion is to take a good book or magazine to read, some activity like music player 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 Oceans Travel.
