For the first time since 2020, the Kazakh airline will resume regular passenger flights on the Almaty - Chengdu route with the frequency of one flight a week on Fridays. From July 7, an additional flight on Fridays will be added. 

Also starting from July 1, China Southern Airlines plans to resume regular passenger flights on the route Almaty - Urumqi with the frequency of one flight a week on Fridays.
