“ACG is very excited to be a partner of Air Astana and FlyArystan in this momentous occasion,” said Claudio Cheinquer, ACG Vice President Marketing for Central Asia, Middle East and Africa. “This is the airline’s first new A320neo from Airbus’ assembly line, and it marks a major milestone evidencing the airline’s successful growth trajectory.”
“FlyArystan is the first low-cost carrier in Central Asia. We operate more than 60 domestic and international destinations with a fleet of 11 A320s. With the arrival of our 12th aircraft, our first new Airbus A320neo, FlyArystan will expand our route network and will offer affordable flights to a larger market,” said Adrian Hamilton-Manns, Managing Director at FlyArystan. The increased seat capacity from 180 to 188 seats per aircraft is the most significant eco-project in the FlyArystan profile.
