The permit was issued by Order 98-10-18 on October 19, 1998 (Docket OST-1998-3633). Uzbekistan Airways has applied for a statement of authorization pursuant to Part 212 of the Department's regulations (14 CFR Part 212) to display AirBaltic's "BT" designator code on flights operated by Uzbekistan Airways to/from the United States.
