Uzbekistan Airways 787 in HNL

Fri Dec 28, 2018 9:44 pm

Noticed today that HY operated a round-trip flight between NGO and HNL as HY3593 and HY3594 on UK-78701 their 787-8.

Truly a rare sighting for HNL, any reason for this charter?

Peak season charter by Japanese travel agencies. There will be a few more round-trips, the last departure out of HNL scheduled on 1/3 at 14:30.

For two years now they have a contract with a Japanese tour operator for charters. Guam has been a regular destination. Looks like they might be doing Hawaii also now.

I am becoming more interested in this type of flying, rare birds operating odd routings for their livery. Is there a site or place one can explore more types of these operations? Hadj & more yearly events require extra lift, I'm curious who sources the aircraft & crews & who they are operated on behalf of. Thank you in advance. B-

Uzbekistan Airways did a bunch of Japanese charters to FAI a couple of winters ago for aurora Borealis tourism. I think it was partly due to JL not having slack in their fleet at the time.

Somewhat related, it seems that ROR will be another destinations for next year during "Golden Week":

Here is the tour (if you can read Japanese) that is using the charter on HY:

P.S. Just on a related note - Japan currently has zero charter operator AFAIK. JL/NH may operates some charter flights here and there, but during peak season I'm guessing that they just don't have enough planes? (That and NH is having those RR engine problems on their 787s like everyone else).
