BOC Aviation Limited has delivered the first of a new group of four Airbus A320NEO aircraft on lease to Uzbekistan Airways. BOC Aviation previously leased three A320NEOs to the airline and the jets are all powered by CFM LEAP-1A engines.

"This transaction reflects our strategy to build a portfolio of latest technology aircraft."

Shukhrat Khudaykulov, Chief Executive Officer of Uzbekistan Airways, said:  "Today, we’ve received new aircraft from our partner – BOC Aviation and we are getting closer to our goal of connecting even more cities, countries and expanding network of Uzbekistan Airways in the world. We will continue our long-term cooperation, according to our principles of special attention to comfort and safety in fleet expansion strategy."

Uzbekistan Airways was established 31 years ago and operates the A320/321, Boeing 767 and 787-8 Dreamliner to more than 50 destinations in Europe, Asia and North America. Uzbekistan Airways obtained its first Airbus A310 30 years ago, on 16 June 1993, which marked the beginning of a glorious tradition of opening new destinations.
