Air Astana Joint Stock Company has announced that it has reached an agreement with Pratt & Whitney that provides compensation and other support for the impact to the Group’s operations arising from the GTF neo engine availability issues.

The agreements that Astana have with Pratt & Whitney, including long term maintenance contracts, will help address costs and will supplement the existing range of robust operational initiatives to address these issues in a sustainable manner.

The Group has also executed the purchase agreement for a sixth spare engine PW1100 with IAE.

This engine, which is scheduled for delivery in April 2024, is aligned with the Group’s mitigation plan for engine issues.

In addition to the previously communicated fleet plan, FlyArystan has executed a lease agreement for two A320ceo aircraft, with deliveries in the first quarter of 2025.
