Check-In at Almaty airport's Somon Air counter was very friendly and efficient. It all went very fast.

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.

Bare bones flight with forgettable service and terrible food by the lowest standards. Unfortunately there are almost no other options from Dushanbe, so Somon Air it will be in the future I suppose...
