Терминал-2 нового аэропорта Ташкента построит швейцарская компания



Швейцарская Mabetex спроектирует и построит один из терминалов аэропорта гражданской (деловой) авиации в Ташкенте.

Строительством второго терминала нового аэропортового комплекса гражданской (деловой) авиации в Ташкенте займутся швейцарские компании, сообщила пресс-служба компании «Узбекистон темир йуллари», реализующая проект.

Контракт на проектирование и строительство «Терминала-2» подписан в столице между «Узбекистон темир йуллари» и компаниями B&A Contractors S. A. и IT Engineering S. A., входящими в состав Mabetex Group.

Новый аэропорт строится на базе аэродрома «Ташкент-Восточный», где раньше размещалась военно-транспортная авиация. Первый терминал будет предназначен для встреч глав государств, официальных лиц и делегаций. Второй рассчитан на обслуживание представителей деловых кругов и других пассажиров, сообщала ранее «Узбекистон темир йуллари». В новом воздушном комплексе также будет функционировать грузовой терминал.

«Терминал-2» будет иметь пропускную способность 1000 пассажиров в час. Здание предлагается выполнить в форме мистической птицы Хумо (ранее в виде птицы Хумо планировалось построить четвертый терминал международного аэропорта Ташкента, но проект был отменен).

Терминал из трех этажей включит в себя отель, рестораны, торговый центр, авиакассы, обменные пункты и другие объекты. В нем будут зоны для разных класса пассажиров: «Эконом», CIP и VIP. Сдача нового комплекса в эксплуатацию намечена на сентябрь 2021 года.

Новый аэропорт строится согласно постановлению президента Узбекистана от июня 2017 года. Ранее сообщалось, что первый этап проекта будет завершен в 2020 году. В настоящее время продолжается строительство взлетно-посадочных полос.

Узбекистан трансформируют в международный транзитный хаб — вице-премьер



«Мы 30 лет не использовали свой транзитный потенциал», — заявил вице-премьер Азиз Абдухакимов. Uzbekistan Airports получит право самостоятельно устанавливать ставки и сборы за услуги аэропортов, а также расширять и модернизировать инфраструктуру для хранения авиатоплива и горюче-смазочных материалов.

Узбекистану предстоит стать международным транзитным хабом с учетом выгодного расположения и потенциала, который не использовался на протяжении 30 лет. Об этом в интервью «Газете.uz» заявил заместитель премьер-министра Узбекистана Азиз Абдухакимов.

Указом президента Шавката Мирзиёева «О мерах по дальнейшему развитию сферы туризма в Республике Узбекистан» компании Uzbekistan Airports по предложениям международных аэропортов страны предоставляется право:

определять и устанавливать ставки и сборы за услуги, оказываемые аэропортом (за исключением услуг, оказываемых для авиакомпаний-резидентов Узбекистана);
расширять и модернизировать инфраструктуру, необходимую для хранения авиационного топлива и горюче-смазочных материалов аэропорта;
заключать на конкурсной основе договора с местными или иностранными юридическими лицами на поставку авиационного топлива и горюче-смазочных материалов, а также договора на их реализацию местным или иностранным авиакомпаниям, осуществляющим рейсы в международные аэропорты страны, в том числе транзитные.
«Это большая проблема. Мы говорим: „Стройте огромные терминалы, сами покупайте ГСМ, сами определяйте тарифы за посадку и взлеты“. Раньше в Узбекистане цена за авиатопливо и услуги была самой высокой в регионе, причем в разы», — сказал Азиз Абдухакимов.

По его словам, цель — максимально быстро трансформировать Узбекистан и открываемые аэропорты в транзитные хабы.

«Надо понимать, что мы потеряли 30 лет. Мы 30 лет не использовали свой транзитный потенциал. В это время Турция и Дубай превратились в ведущие транзитные хабы мира. Но с точки зрения экономики Узбекистан находится в разы в более выгодном положении, чем другие транспортные хабы, если говорить о соседних странах, Дубае и стамбульском аэропорте. Потому что мы находимся ровно посередине. Но огромный транзитный поток между Юго-Восточной Азией и Европой минует Узбекистан, потому что у нас нет ни топлива, ни конкурентных тарифов. Все это тормозило [развитие]» — считает вице-премьер.

Азиз Абдухакимов указал, что Узбекистан по сравнению с соседними странами обладает большим числом преимуществ.

«У нас 365 дней — ясная погода. Казахстан тоже пытается перетянуть транспортные потоки, но у тех же астанинского или алматинского аэропортов с точки зрения погоды больше ненастных дней в году, когда ограничена навигация. У нас 365 дней солнечной погоды, а также наличие исторических центров — Самарканд, Бухара, Хива, Шахрисабз, Фергана. При таком потенциале Узбекистану было предначертано стать международным транзитным хабом», — заявил он.

Документом запланирована реконструкция взлетно-посадочных полос, рулежных дорожек, командно-диспетчерских пунктов, аэронавигационного оборудования и стационарных наземных узлов связи в международных аэропортах Узбекистана, в которых вводится режим «Открытое небо».

Министерству транспорта и компании «Узбекистон темир йуллари» до 1 сентября поручено запустить прозрачную систему онлайн-продажи билетов E-ticket. В ней будет предусмотрена возможность оформления групповых проездных документов юридическими лицами через личный кабинет, а также отслеживания наличия билетов и их онлайн-бронирования через мобильные приложения.

Им же до 1 декабря поручено разработать план по обеспечению транспортных связок (автобусного и железнодорожного сообщения) между городами страны и сопредельных государств для создания удобной логистики пассажирам международных аэропортов.

Минтранспорта и Служба государственной безопасности до 1 декабря разработают проект положения о порядке предоставления международными перевозчиками подразделениям Пограничных войск СГБ предварительной информации о пассажирах.

Ранее мы сообщали, что указом президента часть затрат субъектов туристской деятельности и авиаперевозчиков по организации чартерных рейсов из других стран в Узбекистан будет субсидироваться, безвизовый режим вводится еще для 20 стран.

2020 will be a breakthrough year for the Uzbek aviation sector - official statement



“2020 will be a breakthrough year” for the aviation industry of Uzbekistan due to the high pace of reforms, a joint statement by Uzbekistan Airways and Uzbekistan Airports said. These companies were formed in 2019 from splitting of the National Airline Uzbekistan Airways. The World Bank experts contributed to the distribution of airline and airport functions between the two companies.

“Over the past 30 years, there were virtually no reforms in the Uzbek aviation sector. As a result, serious problems and deep controversies have accumulated. The sector evolved with a monopoly. Hence we have high fares and poor service quality,” the statement adds.

Three years ago were launched reforms aimed at liberalizing the aviation market, expanding the flights, implementing modern management methods and improving the quality of service, the statement adds.

During this period, the number of foreign airlines flying to Uzbekistan increased from 15 in 2017 to 23 in 2019, and in 2020 there should be even more of them. The number of serviced flights at airports in Uzbekistan increased from 21,688 to 25,877 (forecast for 2020 is 30,500), the number of passengers increased from 3.9 million to almost 6.5 million (7.85 million).

Since October 2019, the “open skies policies using the “fifth air freedom” has been launched at Karshi, Nukus, Termez and Bukhara airports. But “the launch of an open skies policies as itself will not result in the immediate increase in the rapid number of flights and the passenger traffic,” the statement said.

To establish flights to these airports, negotiations are underway with a number of airlines, including Turkish Airlines (Turkey), Israir (Israel), Garuda (Indonesia), Aeroflot, IrAero, Siberia, Yakutia (Russia), SCAT ( Kazakhstan) and others. These carriers announced their readiness to launch flights from March to Moscow, St. Petersburg, Novosibirsk, Irkutsk, Krasnoyarsk, Almaty, Nur-Sultan, Aktau. Discussions are ongoing on launching flights to Israel and Turkey.

“There are a number of issues that need to be addressed in the near future related to the infrastructure of airports, the runways and passenger terminals, and services at airports. It is expected that the planned improvements will increase the attractiveness of the Uzbek aviation sector for foreign air carriers,” the statement said.

According to the statement, a number of major projects to improve the condition of airports are planned:

construction of a new passenger terminal and runway at Samarkand international airport, with throughput to be increased from 500 to 1,500 passengers per hour;
the construction of a new runway at the Termez international airport and reconstruction of the Andijan international airport will provide an opportunity to service all types of aircrafts and will increase the number of flights by 2–3 times.
For the high-quality implementation of these projects based on international experience, World Bank experts were involved. They are directly involved in preparing of the Uzbekistan Aviation Industry Development Strategy, aimed at liberalizing the aviation market and introducing modern management methods.

New Humo Air airline is being created to bring competition and meet the demand for domestic and regional flights.

Tashkent to host International Aviation Forum



The International Forum will also host high-level meetings, conferences, exhibitions and interesting presentations, including those related to the development of tourism.

In February, the capital of Uzbekistan will host the first international Uzbekistan Airports, Aviation & Logistics Forum. The air forum will help to attract the world's leading airlines to the country. This and much more was discussed at a press conference held in Tashkent.

It is expected that the international aviation forum will see a large number of international logistics specialists, heads of transport ministries, high-ranking representatives of airports, aviation and transport companies from the UK, Germany, France, Canada, India, Brazil, Turkey, Kuwait, Egypt, Russia, China and South Korea.

“More than 300 representatives from 32 countries will take part in the forum, including such companies as Boeing and Jetcraft, Air Charter Service, Bombardier Business Jets, Lufthansa Consulting, Pegasus Airlines, Turkish Airlines, Air Astana and others”, - said Elyor Ganiev, Minister of Transport of Uzbekistan

The International Forum will also host high-level meetings, conferences, exhibitions and interesting presentations, including those related to the development of tourism.

According to the Deputy Prime Minister, Chairman of the State Committee for tourism development Aziz Abdukhakimov, due to the successful territorial location, climate and a great number of unique historical places, the potential of Uzbekistan in the development of competitive aviation industry in the world market is huge.

“Our neighbors do not have such tourist opportunities as we do. Our transit potential is huge. Uzbekistan has every chance of becoming a transit hub in the near future”, - commented on Abdukhakimov.


To turn this into reality, in the coming years, the government of Uzbekistan has planned a number of measures to expand the country's logistics capabilities.

“From now on, we will work on creating new airlines. Uzbekistan Airways monopoly has finished,it is over. At least 5 or 6 companies will appear in the market in the near future. The quality of passenger transport will also improve. The challenges are huge. This also applies to the transport of goods. By creating competitive conditions, I think we can create an aviation hub. We will be able to fly in all directions since we are located in the center of the continent”, - concluded Ganiev.

The International Aviation Forum is scheduled for February 19-20, 2020. The national exhibition complex "Uzexpocenter" was chosen as a platform for this purpose.

Elyor Ganiev on the Uzbek aviation sector’s main goals



"Attracting foreign investment, digital transformation, developing infrastructure, boosting exports and increasing competitiveness - these are the Uzbek aviation sector’s main goals, the Uzbek Transport Minister, Elyor Ganiev said in his remarks at the International Aviation Forum in Tashkent today. Highlights:

"Speaking about attracting foreign investment and investors, Elyor Ganiev noted that cooperation would be based on the principles of public-private partnership, in particular for the management of provincial airports."

Implementing ITs and digital transformation of the industry is our major concern. Air travels were now impossible without digital technology.

"The development of aviation infrastructure includes the reconstruction and construction of new airports and terminals, runways, repair bases, hangars, warehouses, as well as the modernization of fueling complexes.'

"To increase export figures by air freighting, it is necessary to develop logistics centers and cargo terminals, the minister said and expressed hope for active cooperation with foreign cargo companies."

"Another important goal is the expansion of the non-aviation sphere, "because everyone knows that every airport has a huge infrastructure around that provides various services."

"Uzbekistan hopes, together with partners, to have more hotels, parking lots, restaurants and retail outlets built near airports and the entertainment centers - in airport zones, as without the developed infrastructure, it would be very difficult to attract tourists."

"Uzbekistan expects to boost competition in its market through creation of a number of new airlines in the country."

“We hope that today during meetings and negotiations with our partners we will be able to agree on the creation of such airlines with the status of a resident of Uzbekistan. We will also strive to increase the number of airlines that fly to Uzbekistan”.

"To increase the attractiveness of airports and attract new airlines, it is decided to reduce basic duties by at least 20% at all provincial airports."

“We also see the feasibility, the possibility of hold negotiations, which would allow us, on the whole, to differentially approach to cooperation with each specific airline. I also mean the conditions that our partners are ready to provide to Uzbekistan. Much will depend on the frequency of flights, that is, we are ready to be very flexible in these matters.”

"It is planned to simplify the procedure for obtaining permission to fly through the airspace of Uzbekistan without landings on the basis of flight planning."

Uzbek government intends to hand over state airline to foreign company



Due to the coronavirus, the transportation system around the world has almost come to standstill. Logistic companies are suffering huge losses. It is expected that civil aviation will lose $113 billion by the end of this year, alone.


The President of Uzbekistan held a meeting on sustainable functioning and consistent development of the transport industry. Due to the coronavirus, the transportation system around the world has almost come to standstill. Logistic companies are suffering huge losses. It is expected that civil aviation will lose $113 billion by the end of this year, alone. The local transport companies have been already assessing the damage of 340 billion soums resulting from the quarantine restrictions. And this figure will increase further before the epidemiological situation stabilizes.
So far, the government has taken a number of measures to mitigate the impact of a pandemic, and support the enterprises. For example, joint-stock companies - ‘Uzbekistan Airways’ and ‘Uzbekistan Airports’, are the most affected by the quarantine. They were granted deferments on bank loans of $122 million and tax credits of more than 60 billion soums. Additionally, Interest-free loans worth $50 million were provided from the Anti-Crisis Fund as working capital.
The board also discussed the new ways of stable operation of the transport industry in current circumstances.
The Ministry of Transport was tasked to put forward a business model, aimed at overcoming the aftermath of the coronavirus pandemic for Uzbekistan Airways and Uzbekistan Airports.
Instructions were given to enter the freight market on the Europe-China route and to optimize current and investment costs.
The meeting raised the questions of attracting new air carriers to the civil aviation market and handing over “National carrier” to a well-reputed foreign company to intensify the competition.
The plans to announce the tender for modernization of airports and to transfer the activities of international airports of Andijan, Bukhara, Urgench and Karshi into a public-private partnership were heard.
In contrast, the pandemic has started to have a positive impact on demand for rail transport. The percentage of railways in international freight traffic soared from 75 to 87, which is a good opportunity to increase the number of customers by improving the quality of services and reducing costs.
However, the excess of non-core assets in the structure of the entity complicates the further development of ‘Uzbekistan Railways’.
The instructions have been given to optimize ‘Uzbekistan Railways’ non-core enterprises as part of improving tariff setting mechanisms, renewing the railway carriages and locomotive fleet.
The officials discussed the present state and support of the truck services engaged in international transportation. The recent reforms done over the past three years have stirred up the business in international freight transportation and numbers tripled in our country, the share of domestic enterprises in the foreign market has risen - from 37 to 48 percent.
And the target has been set to increase the number of domestic carriers and increase their share in foreign trade up to 60 percent. It’s worth noting to mention that one freight transport can provide more workplaces, and create 30 000 additional new jobs in the market.

Instructions were given to further modernize the intercity bus services in the Republic of Karakalpakstan and the regions, to provide any financial aid where necessary.
The head of state also touched upon the issue of domestic roads, noting their poor condition and people's discontent with their quality; the need for reconstruction of 80 thousand kilometers of internal roads, the introduction of “toll roads”, which is very common worldwide.
For that, It was assigned to announce a tender for the Tashkent-Andijan “tollway project”, which includes the construction of an alternative tunnel at the Kamchik pass.
