In accordance with the development strategy and the program aimed to modernize and unify the air fleet, Uzbekistan Airways continues to replenish its fleet with new modern airliners. In December 2018, the Uzbek national air carrier intends to get two Airbus A320 Neos.
The newest A320 Neo aircraft have been ordered in a two-class layout having 150 seats each including 12 business class and 138 economy class seats. They will be 20% more economical than their predecessors thanks to new, more economical engines and modern developments in the design of the fuselage. Their flight range has been increased from 4,500 up to more than 6,000 kilometers, as this will allow covering entire Central Europe with flights.
In the second half of 2019, the air carrier’s fleet is expected to be replenished with two new Boeing 787 Dreamliners. And after receiving the sixth Dreamliner in early 2020, Uzbekistan Airways will become the leading operator of this type of aircraft in the CIS.
We note herein that the new airliners for the Uzbek air carrier will be equipped with comfortable and wide seats with individual screens designed for entertainment and more pleasant pastime, communication systems and Wi-Fi. A new approach to aircraft design will provide maximum comfort for passengers in flight.
To date, the Uzbekistan Airways’ fleet consists of modern and comfortable Boeing-757/767, Boeing-787-8 Dreamliner, A320, and cargo Boeing-767-300BCF.
