Air Astana, Kazakhstan’s flag carrier, has taken delivery of its first A321LR, leased from Air Lease Corporation (ALC). The A321LR will join Air Astana’s fleet of 18 Airbus aircraft: eight A320s, four A321s, three A320neo and three A321neo.
P4-KGA has been delivered from Airbus’ Hamburg (XFW) factory. Powered by Pratt & Whitney engines, Air Astana’s first A321LR comprises 166 seats in a two-class configuration: 16 Business Class lie-flat seats and 150 Economy Class. Over the next 18 months, Air Astana should receive 6 more A321LRs.
With this new A321LR, the Kazakhstan flag carrier will continue its strategy of growth and network expansion to European destinations as well as routes to Asia. The A321LR is a Long Range (LR) version of the best-selling A320neo Family and provides airlines with the flexibility to fly long-range operations of up to 4,000nm (7,400km) and to tap into new long-haul markets, which were not previously accessible with single-aisle aircraft.
