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.
