Bombardier delivers first Q400 to Qazaq Air

Toronto - Bombardier has delivered the first of two Q400 to Qazaq Air. The airline placed an order for two Q400 aircraft in 2017 after the successful launch of some domestic routes in Kazakhstan with three leased planes of the same type.

On April 11, Qazaq Air received its first Q400 with a ceremony held in Toronto facilities of the Canadian aircraft manufacturer where the Q400s are manufactured.

“We are delighted with the performance of our fleet of Q400 turboprops and are excited to welcome the additional aircraft into our operation,” said Adel Dauletbek, Chief Executive Officer of the Qazaq Air.

Upon the arrival of its new Q400, the airline plans to fly to new destinations in Kazakhstan as well as to nearby cities in the Central Asian region.

“We congratulate Qazaq Air on the growth of its operations and expansion of its network,” said Ross Mitchell, Vice President of Commercial Operations at Bombardier Commercial Aircraft.

Bombardier's Q400s are designed to operate in some of the most challenging locations around the world. Q400’s extended flight range alongside its low fuel consumption, and especially its certification for operations in extreme weather such as -54°C, make the aircraft ideal for the long and cold routes of the country.
