Air Astana, Kazakhstan's award winning national carrier, continues to develop a strong relationship with OGMA (Indústria Aeronáutica de Portugal, S.A), a leading Portuguese MRO company that specialises in supporting Embraer commercial and business aircraft types. OGMA has completed C-checks on all nine of Air Astana's Embraer 190 aircraft since the contract was established in March 2016. The relationship now extends to covering the upgrade of the IFE systems across the Embraer fleet.

"OGMA has developed a great working relationship with Air Astana based on providing excellent service and quality workmanship. We look forward to continued co-operation in the future," said John Wainwright, Air Astana's Senior Vice President, Engineering Group.

"Our long-term partnership with Air Astana is a unique opportunity to extend our footprint in Central Asia. Air Astana's trust in our services strengthens our position in the worldwide market, reinforcing our competitiveness and flexibility to attend to the multiple challenges that characterise the commercial aviation market," says Nelson Vaz, Chief Commercial Officer of OGMA.
