Aitken Spence Travels welcomes the inaugural Uzbekistan charter for 2023!

Aitken Spence Travels the premiere destination management company in Sri Lanka, will welcome the first charter flight for the year from Uzbekistan on Friday 27th January 2023 to the Mattala Rajapaksa International Airport (MRIA) with more than 200 holiday makers. 

Uzbekistan Airways will operate weekly flights commencing today and will continue till end of March 2023. Aitken Spence Travels was instrumental in bringing the first charter last year as well from this source market that was a new market for Sri Lanka as well. The Uzbekistan charter operation is partnered with one of the leading tour operators in Uzbekistan and the charter is expected to generate 1,600 guests to Sri Lanka.

Aitken Spence Travels will be offering excursions covering the southern coastal belt to other inland locations as Uzbekistan is a landlocked country and the visitors cherish tropical beaches. However, utilizing the opportunity to showcase the rich culture and nature to these high-value visitors, the excursions will cover misty mountains, cultural and heritage sites, and shopping spots in a manner it not only entertains the visitors but also fuels the local economy through our supply chain of hoteliers, transport providers, excursion providers, jeep drivers etc. We are delighted to be a leading destination management company taking the lead in showcasing Sri Lanka to this new source market that had their first experience of Sri Lanka last year.

This year’s charter has been confirmed after a considerable amount of persuasion and convincing considering the country’s challenges. The tourism industry should take a lead and work on creating a conducive environment for visitors. Uzbekistan has great potential to be a source market that attracts luxury visitors and Aitken Spence Travels intends to take advantage of it.
