Air Astana Places Order For Seven New Aircraft With Boeing

Three Dreamliners, Four 767-300ERs Represents Single Largest Order For Commercial Airplanes In Kazakhstan

Boeing and Air Astana have announced an order for four 767-300ERs and three 787-8s. The order is valued at $1.3 billion at current list prices, making this the largest single order for commercial airplanes in Kazakhstan's history.

"Our decision to order the Boeing airplanes is part of Air Astana's long-term growth strategy to expand and modernize our fleet with newer, more fuel-efficient airplanes to serve domestic, regional and international routes," said Peter Foster, president, Air Astana.  "In addition, we want to offer an enhanced travel experience for our customers which we shall be able to do on these airplanes."         

Marty Bentrott, vice president of sales for Middle East, Russia and Central Asia, Boeing Commercial Airplanes, said the region's air transport sector is growing.  "Today, airlines are increasingly looking at lower operating costs and fuel efficiency without compromising on technological innovations and customer experience," he said. "We are confident that both the 767-300ER and the 787 Dreamliner will play an important role as Air Astana continues with its expansion plans."
