The Almaty based airline, which is national carrier of Kazakhstan, and a joint venture with BAE Systems, has announced plans to order six new-build Airbus A320s from the manufacturer in a deal that it values at US $268 million. Deliveries are expected to begin in 2012. The airline already operates seven A320s, two A321s and a single A319 on lease and has an outstanding order for six Airbus A319s, plus three options, placed in May 2008, for deliveries during 2012/13. The carrier is also expecting to introduce two new-build Embraer E-190s into service this spring, on new services from Almaty to Samara and Tbilisi.
