Air Astana is an airline based in Almaty, Kazakhstan and is the flag carrier of the country. The airline started operations in 2002 and runs a diverse fleet of aircraft including the Airbus A319, A320, A321, Boeing 757, 767, and the Embraer 190. They also have three Boeing 787 Dreamliners on order. According to the airline, they plan to “expand the fleet to 33 aircraft by the end of 2016, and to 43 aircraft by 2020.”

The airline flies to over 60 destinations, mostly within Kazakhstan and Russia, but also to destinations in Asia and Europe.

The livery is your standard European-white design, with color on the tail, white fuselage, and titles on the side. Even though the livery seems simple, in person, the gold and silver designs on the tail stand out.

Its also partially owned and operated by British Airways. For a former Soviet country – Air Astana isn’t that bad – like that they give out large candy bars as a snack.

Air Astana has no affiliation with British Airways whatsoever. Their success is down to the work of their experienced and dedicated staff and certainly not as a result of a tie up with BA (or anyone else for that matter).

BAE Systems hold a 49% stake in Air Astana.
