Turkmenistan is one of the most unique and least-visited destinations in the world. In addition to its tough Visa process and remote location, many tourists just do not know how simple it is to actually get to Turkmenistan.
Below, we will explain how getting to this off-the-beaten-path destination is more simple than you might think.
Travel to Turkmenistan by Plane
Turkmenistan is easiest accessed by plane with Turkmenistan Airlines. The national air carrier has direct routes all over the world and is a simple option for most travellers wishing to take a tour of this secretive state.
For travellers living or already travelling in Europe, regular flights are operated from the United Kingdom (London & Birmingham), Germany (Frankfurt), the Czech Republic, Turkey (Istanbul & Ankara), Latvia, Ukraine, Armenia, Russia and Belarus.
