Almaty, Kazakhstan - Kazakh carrier Air Astana pushed back its renewal plans for its fleet due to the Coronavirus pandemic. The airline says the arrival of new planes remains unknown.

"In these conditions, there is no need to talk about expanding the fleet. The company has already taken a number of measures. Speaking in the short and medium-term, of course, the company is concentrating on revising the current agreements with postponing the acceptance of aircraft to a later date," 

A company official said.

He also said that the reception of two new Airbus 320 aircraft, which are already ready for delivery, was postponed.

The airline currently has six A321neo, of which two are LR variants in service, and eight A321neo and five A321LR on order alongside three Boeing 787-8. The airline was planning to replace its older Boeing 757s, 767s, and Embraer jets with the new generation jets.

Since March 22, Air Astana has suspended all flights except repatriation flights.
