Kazakhstan’s state-owned regional airline Qazaq Air has announced the launch of scheduled international flights. The airline, which is expecting the delivery of two new Bombardier Q400 NextGen aircraft in April and May of this year, has scheduled flights to neighbouring Russia and Kyrgyzstan in the coming IATA summer season. The first three international routes will link Almaty with Bishkek and Osh in Kyrgyzstan, and Atyrau with Astrakhan in Russia.

“Gaining IATA’s IOSA certification and expanding our fleet to five aircraft opens new opportunities and new international horizons for Qazaq Air, on which we intend to capitalise,” comments Adel Dauletbek, acting chairman.

Launched in 2015, Qazaq Air is 100 per cent-owned by Samruk-Kazyna National Welfare Fund. Last year it carried 307,000 passengers, 22 per cent more than in 2017.
