The Ilyushin Il-114 (Russian Илью́шин Ил-114) is a Russian twin-engine turboprop airliner designed for local routes. In the Antonov An-24 class, it first flew in 1990. Altogether, 20 Il-114s have been built.
Production of the Il-114 has been terminated in July 2012, with the sixth and last aircraft delivered to Uzbekistan Airlines on 24 May 2013. The decision to end production adheres to the Uzbek government's decision to convert the Tashkent factory to other production lines (namely structural units, household purpose products, spare parts for cars and agricultural equipment), despite Russian interest in keeping the production line and a reportedly high demand prospect for the aircraft. This has translated in an October 2013 announcement by a plant representative, that production is to be resumed after the factory solved financial matters and also due to the interest of a "Russian party".
After Vyborg was forced to shut down in July 2010, Uzbekistan Airways remains as the sole operator of the type. As of October 2012 no further orders have been placed for the Ilyushin 114. Uzbekistan Airways currently operates four of their six aircraft of the type, with two being stored in Tashkent.
In winter 2012/2013 the aircraft is scheduled for the following routes:
- Exclusively for flights between Tashkent and Navoi as well as Termez.
- Together with the Airbus A320 for flights between Tashkent and Karshi, Bukhara or Urgench.
- Together with the Avro RJ85 or the Airbus A320 for flights between Tashkent and Nukus.
Though the aircraft is not scheduled for other internal flights, following ad hoc changes it is also (though rarely) flown to other destinations in Uzbekistan. The same applies to international connections: though these are no longer scheduled for the Ilyushin 114, the aircraft is sometimes also used ad hoc on flights between Tashkent and Ashgabad as well as Bishkek. Uzbekistan Airways frequently changes aircraft prior to flights in order to allow for optimal usage of aircraft space in relation to actual demand.
