Tarmac Delay Contingency Plan

In accordance with Department of Transportation’s Enhanced Protections for Airline Passengers regulations (14 CFR Part 259), Uzbekistan Airways has established a Lengthy Tarmac Delay Contingency Plan, has committed sufficient resources to implement the plan, and has coordinated the plan with all of the airports it serves in the U.S. In the unlikely event of a long onboard delay prior to takeoff or upon landing, our Operations Coordination Center will coordinate with the Pilot-in-command on the aircraft, the local Airport Operations Team, and authorities at the airport to implement our plan.

Onboard delays are situations we always try to avoid. Sometimes weather, gate-space limitations, visibility, airport conditions, mechanical problems, Air Traffic Control requirements, or other uncontrollable circumstances cause unavoidable ground delays.

1. In these cases, Uzbekistan Airways will ensure that:

a. The aircraft does not remain on the tarmac at a U.S. airport for more than four hours unless the Pilot-in-command determines that there is a safety-related or security-related reason why the aircraft cannot leave its position on the tarmac to deplane Customers (e.g., weather, a directive from an appropriate government agency); or Air Traffic Control advises the Pilot-in-command that returning to the gate or another disembarkation point would significantly disrupt airport operations.

b. Passengers are notified every 30 minutes about the delay while aircraft is delayed, including the reasons for the delay, if known.

c. Passengers on the delayed flight will be notified beginning 30 minutes after scheduled departure time (including any revised departure time that passengers were notified about before boarding) and every 30 minutes thereafter that they have the opportunity to deplane from the aircraft that is at the gate or another disembarkation area with the door open if the opportunity to deplane actually exists.

2. For delays approaching two hours, if the Pilot-in-command of the aircraft deems it is safe to do so, Uzbekistan Airways will:

a. Provide snacks and drinking water.

b. Ensure that lavatories remain operable. If necessary and safe to do so, remote aircraft lavatory servicing will be requested and furnished.

c. As necessary and safe to do so, provide first aid and other routine medical services normally offered by Uzbekistan Airways.

d. Work with airport officials and, if necessary, other airlines to share or acquire equipment such as portable stairs, buses, vans, or other means by which Customers may deplane and be safely escorted to a terminal or other reasonable facility.


Customer service plan — attention passengers travelling to/from USA

Customer Service Plan:

Uzbekistan Airways is in business to provide safe, dependable, and friendly air transportation to our customers, along with numerous related services, in the hopes that you will fly us again and again. We work very hard to make your entire experience with us, from making a reservation to deplaning at your final destination, a positive one.

We have outlined our responsibilities and how we will fulfill them in 12-key points, known as our Customer Commitment.

Note: The Uzbekistan Airways Customer Commitment applies to all international flights from/to the United States, and includes:

1. Lowest Fare Availability

Our goal is to make every flight a positive experience for our customers. Customers calling our reservations office (call center) or purchasing a ticket at our ticket counter will be offered the lowest available fare, when specific dates and times are provided, or will be advised that the lowest fare offered by Uzbekistan Airways may be available elsewhere, if that is the case. If you do not provide specific information about your travel requirements, we will provide you with a range of fares for your general needs.

2. Notify passengers of known delays, cancellations, and diversions

We will provide our customers full and timely information on the status of known delays, cancellations, and diversions by:

  • Providing customers, who are ticketed or hold reservations, information about a change in the status of a flight within 30 minutes after we become aware of such a change in the status of a flight;
  • Providing, through our agents at the airport, website and telephone reservation system information regarding known delays, cancellations, diversions and we will strive to provide the best available information concerning the duration of delays and, to the extent available, the flight’s anticipated departure time;
  • Contacting you about cancellations when the event is known if you provide us with contact information in your reservation.
  • Update flight irregularity  information displayed at airport gates within 30 minutes after the carrier becomes aware of such a change in the status of a flight.

3. Delivery of Baggage and Notice of baggage fees and other fees

It is our intention to deliver your baggage on time. However, in the event that this does not occur, we will strive to return your misplaced baggage within 24 hours. Notify an Uzbekistan Airways employee at the airport if you cannot locate your baggage.

We will attempt to contact owners of unclaimed baggage when a name and address or telephone number is available.

We will provide compensation to customers for reasonable expenses that result due to delay in delivery and reimburse passengers for any fee charged to transport a bag if that bag is lost.

4. Allowing reservations to be cancelled without penalty for a defined amount of time

Even if you buy a non-refundable ticket, we will give you time to compare our fares with those of other airlines.

We allow reservations to be held at the quoted fare without payment, or cancelled without penalty, for at least twenty-four hours after the reservation is made if the reservation is made one week or more prior to a flight’s departure.

5. Provide prompt ticket refunds

We will provide prompt refunds for eligible tickets and for credit card purchases once we receive your request for a refund to the credit card issuer or cash purchases.

We will provide a refund within 20 days after receiving your completed request for refund in the original form of payment.

If you were unable to use the ticket due to over sales situation or flight cancellation we will provide prompt refunds within 20 days after receiving a complete refund request for cash and check purchases, including refunding fees charged to you for optional services.

Please make sure you have canceled your reservation before requesting a refund and remember to provide the passenger’s name, the address, the credit card number used for purchase, ticket number(s), the date of travel and departure, and destination cities in your correspondence.
