According to Wikipedia an Mi-8 helicopter could accommodate up to 24 passengers depending on configuration so if it was $800 for a charter than 615 TJS = $75 USD for a scheduled flight doesn't sound unreasonable.

No flights between Khorog and Dushanbe?

Postby aur_rashed » Wed Jun 14, 2017 10:55 am

Hello,
I was checking this post on lonely planet: https://www.lonelyplanet.com/thorntree/ ... t/22531218
It seems like there are no flights between Khorog and Dushanbe, I quote "Unfortunately air travel is not possible due to the grounding of airplanes and helicopters of Tajik Air from Dushanbe to Khorog"

Does anyone know more about this? is it a permanent thing?

Hi all,

A bit of a bump for this post. Have 3/4 travelers in our group hoping for some mode of aerial transportation to Khorog from Dushanbe on August 7th, 8th or 9th. Any further information or updates would be greatly appreciated! Additionally, if anyone would like to pool together for a helicopter ride (if that's an option), please don't hesitate to reach out.

Best,
Alex

Hi Asherr130,

I think you will be able to get on the heli since locals will still want to use it too, but please let us know what happened! Very interested.

What I have heard today (19th June) at the information centre in Khorog that the helicopter does not fly and that taxis are the only option to travel to and from Dushanbe.
If I hear anything new, I will let you know.

Out of interest, how much does a taxi from Dushanbe to Khorog cost?

No Heli service available for now, though you can see one on the khorog airport.

I tried the information desk at dushanbe airport lastweek, the lady there made few calls before confirming that No more air services available and the only option is to go buy land.

Taxi cost 280-300 somani (shared taxi)

I just found the following information:
https://www.ch-aviation.com/portal/news ... 8-aircraft

The destination "Khorog" can actually be found on the booking form on the main website of Tajik Air. However, in the next step, you will get a message that the destination is missing and Khorog cannot be found anywhere. I just wrote them an email to get more information. Let's wait and see. ;)
