Air Astana Takes Delivery of First Airbus A321neo

Air Astana, the national airline of Kazakhstan, has taken delivery of its first Airbus A321neo.

The Air Astana A321neo, which will be used on domestic and regional routes, is configured with 28 Business Class and 151 Economy class seats, all of which are equipped with personal IFE systems.

The A321neo is powered by the latest generation Pratt & Whitney engines, which together with aerodynamic improvements, make it the quietest aircraft in its class and also delivers fuel consumption 15% lower than the previous model.

The cabin features larger overhead-bin capacity and a new mood-lighting system with LED technology.

Air Astana currently operates 13 A320 aircraft and one A320neo, which was delivered in 2016. The carrier plans to increase the fleet of A320neo family aircraft to 17 by 2020.
