Air Astana celebrates 13 years of connecting India, Eurasia
Describing India as an important airline destination for Kazakhstan, Peter Foster, President and Chief Executive Officer of Air Astana, said, "We are proud to have played a significant role in connecting business as well as leisure passengers from Kazakhstan to India over the past 13 years."
He was speaking at an event held to celebrate Skytrax award-winning full-service carrier Air Astana's 13 years of connecting India to Kazakhstan and Eurasia.
Air Astana commenced operations to India in 2004 with flights between Almaty and New Delhi. Today, the airline operates 10 flights between Kazakhstan and India each week, including a daily service between Almaty and New Delhi and three frequencies between Astana and New Delhi.
Air Astana launched direct flights from Astana, the capital of Kazakhstan, to the capital of India, New Delhi, on 2 July 2017. The three-times weekly service currently operates using Airbus A320 and Embraer 190 aircraft. The carrier's plans for the future will see an increase in the number of Astana- New Delhi flights from three to five times a week. Air Astana is also exploring the opportunity of launching new flights from Kazakhstan to other cities in India.
