This aircraft belongs to Air Kazakhstan. Kazakhstan Airlines (Kazair) went out of business some years ago. This aircraft is operated in VIP layout for the Kazakh government.

VIP flights for government in Astana use to be conducted by Orient Eagle Airways with BAC 1-11 (UN-B1111, 737-200 (P4-NEN) and 757-200 (P4-NSN). They still fly the 757 for the government

Also, note the airline is now called Air Kazakhstan. Until approx 12 months ago it was Air Kazakstan, but this was an intricacy of when Kazakhstan gained independence and a presidential decree was passed that the country was to be written in English as Kazakstan. Air Kaz changed their name at that stage, and not long after this the decree was reversed, but Air Kaz stuck with that name (all logos, aircraft, stationary, etc already had Air Kazakstan painted) until recently.
