Air Astana, the national carrier of Kazakhstan has expanded its contract with US-headquartered maintenance provider GA Telesis, on aftermarket support of its growing fleet of Airbus A320neo family.

The Flight Hour support contract covering Air Astana’s three A320neo, four A321neo and two A321LRs includes warranty administration, repair management and round the clock support in aircraft-on-ground (AOG) situations. A large main-base stock of spares and components will be placed at Air Astana’s Nur-Sultan base, and the airline will have access to GA Telesis’ extensive inventory of A320-family rotable components and GA Telesis’ MRO capabilities for both components and aerostructures.

“A new fleet type always brings with it new challenges and risks, but GA Telesis’ support from day one has been substantial in making our new A320neo operation a smooth experience,” comments director for supply management for Air Astana, Yerbol Baimbekov.

Air Astana became A320neo launch customer in the CIS, when the type entered service with Kazakhstan’s flag carrier in 2016. The last of the neos, an A321neo LR, joined Air Astana’s fleet in March this year, and the airline still has further nine neos on order for delivery in the coming years.

The fleet also includes Boeing 767 and 757, Airbus A320 and A321ceos, and Embraer 190 and E2 aircraft.
