With the start of flights to Shymkent twice a week, the airline grows its network in Kazakhstan to three destinations including Almaty and the capital, Astana.
In 2022 we carried almost 300,000 passengers between the UAE and Kazakhstan, an increased figure of 145% compared to 2019, and we look forward to strengthening trade and cultural relations with the start of flights to Shymkent.
Commenting on the plans, the company’s senior vice president Jeyhun Efendi added: “We are excited to see our network grow in Kazakhstan with Shymkent as our third destination which will serve a total frequency of 22 weekly flights. This frequency will increase to 26 weekly flights from February and will offer our customers in Kazakhstan more convenient and reliable options to explore the UAE and beyond.”
