Uzbekistan Airways to Get New Airbus Aircraft

: Jun 19, 2018 - : 3:17 am

The Uzbek national air carrier, Uzbekistan Airways, plans to receive two Airbus A320 neo planes in December 2018, according to the company’s deputy general director Gennadiy Kharlap.


“We hope to get both planes in December of this year. But frankly speaking, Airbus has certain problems with timely deliveries of aircraft. Their factories do not have time to produce engines. Already more than 100 aircraft are idle waiting for engines. Therefore, maybe we will have a slight delay, but we are doing our best to make the planes come on time,” Kharlap told Podrobno.uz.


These will be the newest in its segment aircraft, equipped with wi-fi and monitors in each seat, he noted.


“The aircraft will cover the whole Europe by means of the fact that it is 20 percent more economical than its predecessor, and its range is increased from 4,500 kilometers to more than 6,000. This will allow it to fly to Frankfurt, Paris, London, Milan and Rome. Airbus A320 neo is designed for 150 people, with 12 of them in the business class, and 138 – in the economic class,” he said.


The aircraft fleet of the Uzbek airline currently consists of modern and comfortable Boeing-757/767, Boeing-787-8 Dreamliner, A320 aircraft, as well as cargo plane Boeing-767-300BCF.

The Uzbek airline operates flights to over 20 cities in Europe, America, the Middle East, Asia, 22 cities of the CIS countries and 11 destinations on local airlines.
