Boeing 767-300: flights in a new format from Navoi
Since the 3,4 March of the current year the regular operation of two cargo aircrafts Boeing 767-300 has begun. It will be a new milestone in the history of Uzbekistan Airways’ airfreight.
After full C-check maintenance and painting of the aircrafts Boeing 767-300BCF at Uzbekistan Airways Technics, the aircrafts were sent to Navoi airport for permanent location as the integral component of the International intermodal center of logistics. The commercial aircrafts’ loading capacity is 53 tons.
It should be mentioned that due to commissioning of these cargo carriers, the thorough training in the flight group Boeing of the Flight center of Uzbekistan Airways was carried out. The pilots involved in airfreight had special theoretical training in the Educational and Training center of Uzbekistan Airways.
On the 3rd March flight HY-123 Navoi - Delhi was performed. On the 4th March the second cargo carrier was put into operation for the flight HY-143 Navoi - Dubai. The pilots of the Flight center operated cargo aircrafts Boeing 767-300, they are the Deputy commander of an aircraft squadron T. Fayzullayev, the pilot-instructor B. Narkhodzhayev, commanders of AC G. Romanov and R. Turabov, the co- pilots M. Mirkhaydarov and M. Vakhabov.
At the time of transition to summer navigation on the 29th March, 2015 Uzbekistan Airways will perform new regular cargo flights from Navoi airport to Amsterdam, Shanghai and Mumbai. The geography of Uzbekistan Airways flights by Boeing-767-300BCF consists of seven directions with frequency of 15 flights a week: to Delhi – 3, Dubai – 3, Frankfurt – 2, Tianjin – 1 flight a week, to Amsterdam, Shanghai and Mumbai 2 times a week. Charter flights are also planned.
We would like to remind that the project of re-equipment of two passenger Boeings into cargo carriers was realized with the assistance of the government of the Republic of Uzbekistan. The creation of modern cargo carriers’ park meeting the international requirements and standards will promote further development of the Intermodal center of logistics on the basis of Navoi airport and increase the airfreight volume of Uzbekistan Airways.
