I am preparing a trip for next September to Uzbekistan.
I would take Uzbekistan flight from NYC to TAS. The flight has a stopover in RIX. Does anyone know if it is posible to do a stay in Riga for some days and take the second leg afterwards?

I also want to visit the Caucasus in the same trip. I know it is far from Uzbekistan but it is much more closer than doing it in a second trip from Mexico (my homecountry). So, anyone knows of airservices between TAS and Georgia or Armenia? I have not been able to find any..

Moreover, how can I buy Uzbekistan air tickets if they do not have an online facility in their website?

Cheers, and any comments from people living in Uzbekistan and the Caucasus will be very much appreciated.

Hola Pzurita1,

nice to read from you again...

About your question if there any chance to have an stopover at RIX in your flight to TAS, the answer is: depend the class and the restrictions you will buy it. Riga is a beautiful city but not to spend, in my opinion (sorry for this comment to all the Latvian members of this forum) more than two days.

About to fly to Georgia, until few months ago, there are not any direct flights until a new scheduled flights were announced by Tbilaviamsheni Georgia flying from TBS to TAS twice a week with both YK4 and TU3 (in old Aeroflot colours).

These planes has totally refurbished interiors and, as my job colleagues said me, they had had a very pleasant flights. From Tbilisi you can fly in any Armavia plane to Yerevan, normally operated with YK2 equipment.

And, finally, to answer your question about how to purchase your HY flight ticket, must to say that Uzbekistan Airways is an IATA airline, so you can buy your ticket in any travel agency.

Hope my comments will help you.

Have a nice stay there.

Gerard

It actually depends on how much you want to see and the time of the year. To see the Old Town by itself one day would be enough but if you want to see the whole city, you might need another few days. In addition, if you go during the summer, you have to go to Jurmala (pronounced Yurmala), which is a resort town located next to Riga. It's a must but only during the summer so expect to spend at least 2 days there on a good weather.

With that being said, keep in mind that HY JFK-RIX-TAS flight operates twice a week during the summer months and once a week during winter (unless the schedule changed). So let's say you take a Thursday flight out of JFK and arrive to RIX friday morning. The next HY flight out of RIX will be on Monday morning. If you think that the weekend in RIX is all you need, as RAFVC10 pointed out, then I guess it will work out for you.

To get a feel of what Latvia looks like, read the report about my latest trip:
