Here is the best info I have seen so far: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=5157&start=200#p19451

In TIMATIC, put Uzbekistan as the TRANSIT Country (NOT the Destination), and you'll get:

TWOV (Transit Without Visa): Nationals of [...] with a confirmed onward ticket for a flight with Uzbekistan Airways (HY) to a third country within 5 days.

So it'd appear only the ticket OUT of UZ has to be on UZbekistan Airways, not the ticket into UZ.

We will update accordingly.

Dear Admin,

Me and my wife will be transiting through Tashkent, arriving from Paris on Uzbekistan Airways on HY252 (7th march 2020, local time) and the connecting flight to India is also Uzbekistan Airways on Hy427 on 10th march at 0005hrs (local time)....... so we were hoping to get the 5-day free transit visa from Tashkent as both our flights are from Uzbek airways.........How do we apply for the free transit visa. We are both holding INDIA passports and based in Mumbai,India. Some forums say that we have to apply at the Uzbek embassy in my home country....can you verify this?
Kindly advise as we spoke to Air France and VFS as well, but none were clear about the rules.

You will be visa-free for these 5 days as I understand it. So no need to go to the embassy, you will be stamped in at the airport.
