(TJK) currently uses the airplane on routes from Dushanbe to Almaty, Baku, and Bishkek according to "Asia Plus" news agency.
July 2014: News Item A-1: Tajik Air (TJK) has been reintegrated with Dushanbe International Airport by their owner, the Tajik government. According to "Central Asian Aero News (CAAN)," the new entity is headed by Rustam Holikov.
The move is aimed at ensuring improved fiscal and operational management of (TJK) which, in 2008, saw Dushanbe and other local airports, spun off into a separate entity. The resulting loss of monopoly resulted in severe losses which almost led to (TJK)'s demise.
The Tajik national carrier currently operates 1 737-300, 2 737-400s, 2 757-200s, 2 Tu-154Ms and 1 MA-60 on flights throughout Central Asia, the (CIS), and Europe. While it continues to operate 2 An-28s and 1 An-26, according to (CAAN), all of its parked 23 Soviet era airplanes, including "An-24s, Yak-40s and Tu-154s" will be put up for sale "through the State Committee on Investment & State-owned Property Management."
News Item A-2: Taban Air (TBM), Iran is wet-leasing a Tajik Air (TJK) 737.
News Item A-3: Tajik Air (TJK) currently operates 8 airplanes, and serves 8 countries, 15 destinations, 17 routes and 8 daily flights.
November 2015: Taban Air ((IATA) Code: HH, based at Mashad) (TBM) has wet-leased 757-2Q8 (27599, EY-752) from Tajik Air ((IATA) Code: 7J, based at Dushanbe) (TJK) with the 757 having been ferried from Dushanbe to Tehran Imam Khomeini.
February 2016: News Item A-1: Tajik Air (TJK) is planning to lease 2 767-200ERs as part of its fleet expansion plans "Central Asian Aero News" has reported. The airplanes are scheduled to arrive during the current half of the year.
At present, the state-owned airline's operational fleet consists of 1 737-300, 2 737-400s, 3 757-200s, 1 MA-60, 2 An-28s, 1 An-26, and 3 Mil Helicopters.
News Item A-2: The Tajik government has disbanded the Aviation Company of Tajikistan (OSHC) (ACT) just 6 months after it was established. Founded in June last year, the government had sought to use the firm to bring Tajik Air ((IATA) Code: 7J, based at Dushanbe) and Dushanbe International Airport back under 1 umbrella holding company in a bid to improve operational and cost efficiencies at the 2 state-owned enterprises.
However, according to "Central Asian Aero News," the firm was officially dissolved at the end of last month for reasons that remain unclear.
The failed merger has been linked to the dismissal of Tajik Air (TJK)'s former (CEO), Rustam Khalikov, who last year criticized the Ministry of Transport for toying with (TJK)'s finances. In a written submission to the Prosecutorís Office, he obliquely stated that the Tajik Civil Aviation Department's policies, presumably the failed merger, had cost the airline TJS1.5 million/USD190,852.
Though Khalikov was sacked on January 27, a day after the (ACT) was officially wound up, his complaint is still being processed by Minister of Transport, Sherali Gandzhalzoda. Khalikov has since been replaced by Khairullo Rakhimov.
