Kazakhstan has taken delivery of the first two C295 transports that it ordered last year.
The contract includes further six options that will be progressively confirmed in the coming years.
The aircraft were formally handed over in Sevilla before the ferry flights, via Astana, to Almaty, where they will be based.
They were technically accepted earlier in Seville by a combined team of Kazspetsexport, the Kazakhstan Ministry of Defence, and the Kazakhstan Air Forces.
The purchase contract additionally covers the related service support package for spare parts and ground support equipment.
