On December 19, 2023, Uzbekistan Airways JSC welcomed the next Airbus A320neo for commercial operation.

This type of aircraft is already the seventh in the airline’s fleet. It is designed to carry 186 passengers and has a mono-class layout. The airliner was purchased under a long-term lease from BOC Aviation Limited and so far, has a simplified fuselage color - completely white with the company logo on the tail and engines and the inscription Uzbekistan Airways.

On New Year‘s Eve we expect the arrival of another Airbus A320neo as part of a year-long plan to acquire five aircraft from the French manufacturer.
