FlyArystan has demonstrated its Airbus A320 aircraft, which is ready to take passengers on board, Kapital.kz reported.
The Kazakh low-cost airline will operate its first flight on the Almaty - Nur-Sultan route on May 1.
“We are part of the Air Astana group of companies. The aircraft also belongs to Air Astana, but previously it had a different configuration. We removed the business class, remade the cabin and put 180 Germany-made seats,” said Zhanar Zhaylauova, Sales and Marketing Director at FlyArystan.
She noted that the company took into account the experience of the British EasyJet and Malaysian AirAsia budget airlines.
Today FlyArystan offers several tariff packages for customers, which can be selected based on their needs.
“The lowcoster differs in that it does not include food and baggage in the ticket price. You can choose and pay only for the services you need.” said Zhaylauova
As many as 30 new flight attendants and 12 experienced flight attendants from Air Astana will serve passengers.
The second aircraft of FlyArystan is now at the technical service base. Two more Airbus aircraft will arrive in Kazakhstan in October. The plans of the low-cost airline include increasing the fleet up to 15 aircraft in four years.
In late 2018, Air Astana announced the creation of FlyArystan, its low-cost subsidiary. The company plans to transport up to one million passengers in the first year of operation.
