Air Astana Takes Delivery of First Airbus A321LR

Kazakhstan’s flag carrier, Air Astana, has taken delivery of the first of seven Airbus A321LRs on lease from Air Lease Corporation.

The A321LR joins Air Astana’s fleet of 18 other Airbus aircraft which includes eight A320s, four A321s, three A320neos and three A321neos. Another ten Airbus aircraft are scheduled for delivery by the end of 2020.
