Flight No. NU 745 operating by Uzbekistan Airways on the route Tashkent – Tbilisi, air route is delayed today, July 19, 2019, in connection with the closure of the runway at the Tbilisi International Airport.
At the moment, the delay is two hours and forty minutes. The Uzbekistan Airways plane will fly out of the Tashkent International Airport to Tbilisi after the opening of the runway at the airport of destination.
On July 16, 2019, Uzbekistan Airways launched its regular direct flights to the capital of sunny Georgia, the city of Tbilisi.
Georgian Ambassador to Uzbekistan Zurab Abdushelishvili, Head of the National Tourism Administration of Georgia Mariam Kvrivishvili, heads of other ministries and departments, experts of the Uzbekistan Airways representative office in Tbilisi, employees of the airport, representatives of local media and the public solemnly greeted passengers at the international airport in Tbilisi.
At the meeting, the participants noted that regular flights en route Uzbekistan – Georgia will contribute to strengthen friendly relations and expand cooperation between the two states, including tourist contacts.
Uzbekistan Airways has halved the flight time on its routes to Southeast Asia due to the opening of Pakistan’s airspace for commercial traffic.
Note that after the closure of the airspace over Pakistan, Uzbekistan Airways flew bypassing the territory of this state, and therefore the flight time for its aircraft was increased. For example, if the flight time bypassing the Tashkent – Delhi route was 04:55 h, Delhi – Tashkent – 05:30 h, now this flight arrives from Tashkent to Delhi in 02:50 h., From Delhi international airport (named after Indira Gandhi) to Tashkent International Airport (named after Islam Karimov) the flight time is 2 hours and 30 minutes. Flight time has also decreased on flights on the following air routes: Tashkent – Bangkok – Tashkent, Tashkent – Amritsar – Tashkent, Tashkent – Kuala Lumpur – Tashkent, Tashkent – Jakarta – Tashkent and Tashkent – Mumbai – Tashkent.
Specialists of Uzbekistan Airways Technics (UAT) national air company «Uzbekiston Havo Yollari» for the first time performed complex repairs on Boeing 757-200 airliner of "SCAT" airline (Kazakhstan) - a long-term and reliable partner of Tashkent repair company.
Since the beginning of this year, UAT has undergone regular maintenance and repair of two Kazakhstani air carrier's aircraft. One of the aircrafts, along with a heavy form of maintenance - C-chek - for the first time together with specialists of Boeing Corporation implemented a project to repair the tail part of the fuselage. This type of repair is considered to be a complex operation, as poor quality repair of the damaged hull may cause later structural destruction of the aircraft during repeated pressure drop cycles.
As this type of work has not been carried out by UAT specialists before, the project implementation was divided into two stages. In the first stage, which involved thorough preparation, the necessary documentation and technologies were studied and developed, drawings, special equipment and parts were made and adjusted. In turn, each stage of preliminary works was sent for consideration and agreed with Boeing specialists. During the second stage, a round-the-clock repair facility was set up in the hangar of the repair facility to repair the damage together with representatives of Boeing who arrived in Tashkent.
Taking into account the complexity of the repair, UAT and Boeing specialists are unanimous that careful preliminary preparation and coordination of actions, regardless of the scope of work, were positive factors that contributed to the execution of works in the shortest possible time and at the proper level.
In the course of the primary defection of the second Boeing 757-200 aircraft by SCAT, numerous corrosion damage to the underground fuselage of the rear luggage compartment was detected. As a result, a decision was made to remove the lower part of the rods on a mass scale using specially manufactured equipment to repair the damage to the tail part of the fuselage of the aircraft. Since the regulation provides for the alternate removal of each unit of the rods only after the completion of the full cycle of repair of the previously removed profiled part and its installation or replacement, these works are lengthy and time-consuming. In order to regulate and check the results during the whole period of works the detailed assessment of reliability by non-destructive control methods was carried out.
The great interest of UAT specialists, caused by the development of a new type of repair and a large amount of work on removal of corrosion products, as well as the possibility of continuing cooperation with a long-term and reliable partner, has served as a stimulus and catalyst in the performance of works at a high level, once again confirming not only the capabilities of production facilities of the airline, but also the qualified training of engineering staff.

It should be noted that Uzbekistan Airways and Boeing have been closely cooperating for over 20 years in the supply, operation and maintenance of modern passenger aircraft. The companies jointly manage a shop for repairing composite components of aircraft at Uzbekistan Airways Technics. In February 2019, NAC and Boeing signed another agreement under which the U.S. company will provide more efficient maintenance and support to the fleet of Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner aircraft of Uzbekistan's national air carrier. Also, the companies signed an agreement on providing Boeing with digital service solutions to improve operational efficiency by providing accurate and reliable air navigation information.
Today, on July 2, 2019, at 18:35, the fifth Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner of the National Airline of Uzbekistan landed at the “Tashkent” International Airport named after I.Karimov.
The new airliner was greeted in the capital's airport with the participation of the management and employees of the Uzbekistan Airways, representatives of the public and the mass media.
The non-stop flight from Seattle to Tashkent of about 12 hours was a success. The new aircraft was piloted by the crew of the National Airline of Uzbekistan: pilot-inspector of the Flight Complex of the NAC Joseph Zak and Boeing 787 commander Malik Akhmedov. Before arriving in Tashkent, the aircraft passed flight and ground tests at the Boeing airfield in Everett. The fifth Dreamliner of the NAC was received at the manufacturer's plant by the Deputy Director General of the NAC Gennady Kharlap, Deputy Directors of aviation enterprise “Uzbekistan Airways Technics” Andrey Margachev and Valeriy Kosov. During the test flights, all the mechanisms of the airliner were checked and the necessary procedures were worked out.
The new aircraft, which received the registration number UK78705, has installed GEnx-1B turbofan jet engines of GE Aviation company, which provide low noise level, minimum CO2 emissions and better fuel efficiency. It is the fourth board of the airline to have a satellite communications station for broadband Internet access during the flight. Panasonic Avionics Corporation is a provider of on-board communications and In flight Entertainment and Connectivity, as well as the A320neo of the NAC and previous Boeing 787-8 Dreamliners.
The new aircraft was also acquired as part of an investment project to upgrade and expand NAC's aircraft fleet with modern aircraft technology to ensure competitiveness and flight safety, and is designed to carry 246 passengers (24 in business class and 222 in economy class). The new aircraft will be used for flights to Frankfurt and Beijing. Spacious saloon, comfortable and wide armchairs, new floor covering, lighting and noise insulation, personal touch screen HD-screens for using entertainment programs, Wi-fi for Internet access, will undoubtedly provide the passengers of "Uzbekistan Airways" with maximum comfort and exciting pastime in flight.
It should be noted that the National Airline of Uzbekistan became the first customer of Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner in Central Asia. At present, this type of airliner is used for flights to Europe, Asia, America, from Alaska to New Zealand.
In 2020, in accordance with the development plans of Uzbekistan Airways, the fleet will have six airliners of this type and will become the leading operator of such aircraft in the CIS.
