The crew’s cabin has been also re-equipped to accommodate personnel responsible for the escorting of cargo.   The refitting of the second Boeing-767-300BCF took about 110 days and has been completed according to the schedule. The aircraft has been accepted and introduced by the company after appropriate testing procedures. Today the Boeing aircraft that had served for the company’s benefit for many years has been granted ‘the second life’ and it will now go through a thorough С-check service and re-painting at Uzbekistan Airways Technics. The converted aircraft will serve the flights from the Navoi international airport to Dubai, Frankfurt, Tian Jing, Aktobe, Delhi and other destinations, altogether 13 flights a week.
