WARNING! This is the crappiest airline among all. Pay a bit extra and fly with a more reputable and decent airline (Turkish Airlines, for instance). Somon Air treats you as garbage. I had a flight from Dushanbe to St. Petersburg with Somon Air, departure time 06:30, in the morning. I arrived at the airport more than two hours ahead, just...

Arrived today from Dubai to Dushanbe on Somon Air and they have lost our laggage. We are here for 2 weeks holiday and we had everything for 3 of us in there and now don't know what to do. We have spoken to few people in Somon Air but no luck. No one is showing interest at all while we...

I have been little bit scared by comments about Somon Air before flight, but actually, aircraft was in a good condition, sits are comfortable, no delay, careful personnel, big and tasty halal meal, toilets was clean. Online registration is unavailable, registration and laggage dropp-off at the airport organised in the eastern manner: there no organised line, people waiting in a...

Excellent airline that cost the same as a LCC but actually have service and food for free onboard. The flight from dubai to dushanbe was on time both ways. Comfortable seats and declinable chairs.

Check-In at Almaty airport's Somon Air counter was very friendly and efficient. It all went very fast. Unfortunately afterwards one gets stuck at the most ridiculous passport exit control I have seen anywhere. I had to wait for about 50 minutes to get through and that was even before security. The flight itself was pleasant, the B737-800 with enough legroom...

It was a pleasant flight, but strangely organised that we were served Food in the middle of the flight in stead of the time closing to arriving in Dushabne. Most of the other passengers were workers on their way back home from Russia. No Entertainment, but that is O.K. With a flight which lasts 5 hours from 1 a.m. in...

Very bad organized airlines, dedicated mainly for country officials and friends of crew. If you do not want to loose your psychic, do not use them. To be positive, they have quite new planes and food is acceptable.

Amazing take off out of Dushanbe with snow-covered mountains on each side. Very good service, friendly smartly dressed staff, clean plane and good movies for the short distance. A very good airline to develop Tajikistan's tourism industry.
