In Ukraine, Belarus, and the Baltic countries, the easiest way to deliver remains is by motor transport, as few destinations have airports. In Ukraine, only Kiev, Odessa, and Simferopol have airports, and in Belarus, only Minsk does. Transportation of the deceased by rail should happen only in extreme cases, as passenger trains rarely include postal-baggage cars, which can transport remains. At borders, hearses have priority over the public queue.
In Uzbekistan (Tashkent, Samarkand, Ferghana, Urgench, Namangan, Bukhara), Tajikistan (Dushanbe, Khujand), Kyrgyzstan (Bishkek and Osh), Kazakhstan (Almaty, Astana, Ust-Kamenogorsk, Kostanay, Karaganda), Turkmenistan (Ashgabat), as well as in Armenia (Yerevan) and Azerbaijan (Baku, Ganja), it is most advantageous to ship remains by plane. The cost of air travel varies from 7,000 to 26,000 rubles, depending on the carrier.
In Georgia (Tbilisi), remains are shipped via Istanbul (Turkish Airlines). The advantages of such air transport compared with other transportation options are the time and low cost (from 27,000 to 36,000 rubles, depending on the weight of the coffin).
The embassies of the Asian CIS republics quite regularly provide help in transporting the deceased. For example, the Tajikistan Embassy almost always pays for the flight of remains, so the relatives of the deceased only spend money on terminal services and handling the air freight bill (around 7,000 rubles)
