Air Astana presents first A321 Long Range aircraft

Kazakhstan’s Air Astana has presented its first Airbus A321 Long Range aircraft.

The airline is scheduled to take a further six Airbus A321LR aircraft on lease from the US’ Air Lease. The new aircraft will gradually replace the fleet of Boeing 757s, which have been in operation since 2003.

Air Astana now has 19 Airbus aircraft in its fleet, including eight A320, four A321, three A320neo, three A321neo and one A321LR. The average age of Air Astana’s fleet is now 7.1 years.

Peter Foster, president and CEO of Air Astana, commented: “The arrival of the A321LR aircraft represents another major step in the process of fleet modernisation, with the new aircraft offering the latest technologies.”
