Turkmenistan is serviced by the region’s major flight hubs. The national carrier Turkmenistan Airlines has a website where you may or may not be able to order tickets online. Most likely not, though. Although the company has a bad name online, we have only had good experiences so far flying with Turkmenistan Airlines. Good service, plentiful food, reasonable prices.
A major problem is that they are not plugged in yet with the international flight search engines. But you can find out schedules through Flightstats airport departures and arrivals.
