Air Astana, Kazakhstans flag carrier, has taken delivery of its first Airbus A320neo.

The A320neo is powered by Pratt & Whitney engines and features a two class cabin layout, seating 16 passengers in business and 132 in economy.

The aircraft, leased from Air Lease Corporation, is part of a deal signed at the Paris Airshow in 2015 for 11 Airbus A320neo Family aircraft.

"The A320 Family has proven to be a success in service with Air Astana over the past ten years, for its passenger appeal, low operating costs and reliability," said Peter Foster, President and CEO, of Air Astana. "The A320neo Family offers significant improvements in all of these areas."

The A320neo will join Air Astanas Airbus fleet of 13 A320 Family aircraft, and will be operated on domestic and international network.
