Uzbekistan Airways accepted delivery of the fourth Boeing 787 Dreamliner, which landed at the Tashkent airport, making a non-stop flight from the Boeing plant in Everett (Washington, USA), the carrier said.
Uzbekistan Airways has selected GEnx-1B engines to power four new Boeing 787-8 aircrafts. Each engine order is valued at more than $230 million (USD), including a custom-ordered spare engine.
The Boeing 787 Dreamliner is an American long-haul, mid-size wide-body, twin-engine jet airliner manufactured by Boeing Commercial Airplanes. Its variants seat 242 to 335 passengers in typical three-class seating configurations. It is the first airliner with an airframe constructed primarily of composite materials.
