At a press conference in Almaty, the president of the airline Peter Foster explained that the launch of flights to the U.S. is entirely dependent on the delivery of Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft, which are expected to arrive in 2025.
He also added that he does not rule out the possibility that there may be further delays with the delivery of Boeing planes, which was already postponed due to the pandemic. According to him, the current geopolitical situation in the world is creating difficulties at manufacturing plants.
In January of 2022, the Senate of Kazakhstan ratified the agreements between the Government of the Republic of Kazakhstan and the Government of the United States on the establishment of a legal basis for opening direct air communication between the two countries.
"Both parties will be able to operate flights without restrictions on the number of airlines, destinations and frequencies. This marks the first "open sky" agreement in our country's history," explained Minister of Industry and Infrastructure Development Kairbek Uskenbayev.
Presently, Kazakhstan does not own any aircraft that meet the requirements from the American side.
