History

Uzbekistan Airways Boeing 757-200.


Following the dissolution of the Soviet Unionmarker, Uzbek President Islom Karimov in 1992 authorised the creation of a state airline. Uzbekistan Airways was formed with the intention of modernising and developing the country's airports and transport infrastructure. Intended goals also included a strong presence in the international flight industry. This was characterised by the airline's maiden flight being from Tashkentmarker to Londonmarker, rather than a small domestic route.

Domestic flights were launched using aircraft formerly belonging to Aeroflot. When international routes became top priority, Airbus planes were leased, starting in 1993. The international fleet now uses a mixture of Boeing and Airbus airplanes.

Uzbekistan Airways serves almost 50 destinations worldwide and at home from Tashkent International Airportmarker. The airline owns 11 airports, 5 of which have International status. Uzbekistan Airways is not part of any partnerships or alliances, but is in talks of joining the SkyTeam Alliance.

Uzbekistan Airways Technics provides all types of technical services for aircraft IL-76, IL-62, AN-2, YAK-42 and aircraft engines Аn-25, ТА-6А, ТА-8. A-, B-, C-, D-, IL-Check of Boeing 767, Boeing 757, Airbus 310, RJ-85.

The CEO of Uzbekistan Airways is Valeriy Nikolaevich Tyan.

The Government of Uzbekistan has confirmed plans to offer a 49% share in the airline to foreign investors as strategic partners with full management control. The full terms of the privatisation will be confirmed later in 2007 and a preferred bidder selected in 2008. Russiamarker's leading airlines are expected to be the most likely bidders .

Uzbekistan Airways is expected to join the SkyTeam some time in 2010/2011. Doing so will enable its customers to fly to over 900 destinations world wide on partner airlines. Uzbekistan Airways admittance into the Alliance is being sponsored by Korean Air
