"Air travel in and out of our region is increasing and the 767-300ER, with its excellent fuel efficiency and operational flexibility, will enable us to successfully meet the growing demand," said Valeriy Tian, director-general, Uzbekistan Airways. "As we celebrate our 20th anniversary and implement our growth plans, we look forward to continuing our partnership with Boeing."

"We congratulate Uzbekistan Airways on their 20th year of successful operations and Boeing is proud to be a partner with this technically advanced and extremely well managed airline," said Marty Bentrott, vice president of Sales for Middle East, Russia and Central Asia, Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "With the new, even more passenger-pleasing cabin interior, low operating costs and technological innovations, Boeing is confident that the 767-300ERs will play an important role as Uzbekistan Airways continues with its expansion plans." of 2/7/2012
