Air Astana will fly its new Airbus A321LR between Nur-Sultan Airport (previously known as Astana International) and Heathrow from the end of March 2020.
The Kazakh flag carrier will receive a total of seven of the narrowbody aircraft over the next three months, which are replacing the fleet of Boeing 757s it received in 2003. A Boeing 757 currently operates the Heathrow route.
The A321LR will have the same number of seats – 16 in business and 150 in economy – but introduce a new style of business class cabin.
The Thomson Vantage seats feature the airline’s signature purple-and-white pattern on the pillows and are configured in a mix of 2-2 (rows one, three and five) and 1-1 (rows two and four), with the latter “throne” seats offering direct aisle access and more privacy.
Pitch is 44 inches for the single seats and 45 inches for the pairs, while width is between 20.6 inches and22.3 inches.
