Uzbekistan Airways Places Orders for 12 Airbus A320neo

Uzbekistan Airways Places Orders for 12 A320neo Family Models with Airbus

Eight further A320neos and four A321neos will be ordered by the flag carrier of Uzbekistan.

Today, Uzbekistan Airways announced a purchase of 12 Airbus A320neo jets. The flag carrier of Uzbekistan already has a fleet of 17 CEO A320 family aircraft. It hasn’t yet chosen which engines to put in its new order.

As January draws to a close, it appears that Airbus has surpassed Boeing in terms of purchase announcements. Before receiving the Uzbekistan Airways order today, the European aircraft manufacturer received a 12-Airbus A220 commitment from Delta Air Lines.

Boeing hasn’t disclosed any commercial orders in the interim, however it appears that Hawaiian Airlines has placed an order for two 787s. However, NASA’s Sustainable Flight Demonstrator Award has been given to the American aircraft manufacturer.

Uzbekistan Airlines increases its Airbus fleet

Today, Uzbekistan Airways expanded its fleet of Airbus narrowbodies. With four of the larger variety, the 12 A320neo family order is divided between the A320neo and the A321neo. The A321neo won’t be an LR or XLR model, as far as is known.

Uzbekistan Airways intends to expand both its domestic and international network using the Airbus Airspace cabin on these new aircraft. The contract with Airbus represents a new step in our fleet modernization strategy, which aims to provide our passengers with the most up-to-date and pleasant aircraft, said Ilhom Makhkamov, Chairman of the Board of Uzbekistan Airways, in response to the news.

At the same time, these brand-new, very fuel-efficient A320neo Family aircraft will assist us in growing and strengthening our presence in Central Asia as well as our domestic and global networks. today’s fleet of Uzbekistan Airways
