Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Wednesday, 4 May 2011

[HD videos below] On 27 April 2011, Mr. Peter Foster, the eloquent President of Kazakhstan's national airline, Air Astana gave a very in-depth media presentation.

As the rather informal, yet highly educational press conference, lasted well over an hour, we have had to cut the video up into three different HD videos, all of which are posted below.

In this, the first part of three, he shares the airline's audited results, discusses the plans for the airline's fleet, why some aircraft are leased and others purchased, their plans for the Central Asia region, whether the Middle Eastern carriers pose a threat, what role the 787 Dreamliner plays in their plans and much, much more.

UPDATE NOTICE - The three HD videos which totalled approximately 43.86 minutes were removed on 13 May 2011 on the request of the President. Please instead see the: Interview with Mr. Peter Foster, President of Air Astana. Our sincere apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused. Thank you.
