As part of the development of the country's aviation industry, starting from August 2021, Uzbekistan Airways launched flights on a hybrid basis. Airbus A320 converted airliners in a full economy class layout, designed for 174 passenger seats, appeared in the airline's fleet, which made it possible to reduce fares by an average of 20% compared to classic air transportation on routes where business class air transportation was not in demand.
Uzbekistan Airways has created the most comfortable conditions, unlike classic low-cost carriers, which for the most part do not provide food and free baggage allowance.
The main differences between full-economy flights of Uzbekistan Airways Express (UAE) from the classic regular flight of Uzbekistan Airways (UA):
– the number of passengers is 174 (UAE), and there are more passengers on regular flights
– no business class (UAE), and on a regular flight - there is a business class
– for 1 piece of baggage - 23 kg and 5 kg of hand luggage (UAE), on regular regular flights of Uzbekistan Airways - 32 kg and 8 kg of hand luggage
– flights are carried out exclusively on A320 aircraft (UAE), and on regular flights you can see all aircraft from the airline’s fleet
– Uzbekistan Airways Express has retained the provision of meals on flights with a duration of two hours or more: the provision of a sandwich and water. At the same time, on classic airlines, on flights from 2 hours of flight, full hot meals are provided.
To date, Uzbekistan Airways Express operates flights on four aircraft from Tashkent and regions of the Republic of Uzbekistan to the cities of the Russian Federation and Kazakhstan: Moscow, Ufa, Perm, Kazan, Samara, Yekaterinburg, Mineralnye Vody, Omsk, Sochi, Krasnoyarsk, Irkutsk and Almaty.
The information service of the airline asks all passengers to clarify all the details when buying an air ticket for their flight - Uzbekistan Airways Express or a classic flight.
