Air Astana, the Skytrax award-winning national carrier of Kazakhstan, will offer daily non-stop flights from the Nazarbayev International Airport in Astana to London Heathrow, effective June 1.
The additional frequencies, on Wednesdays and Fridays, are already available for sale, the press service of Air Astana said in a message.
“We are delighted to have finally secured daily flight status on what is such a prestigious and popular route – the only direct service linking the UK to Kazakhstan,” said Air Astana CEO and President Peter Foster.
He added that London has consistently grown in significance, with both business and leisure travelers, and it comes at an opportune time too for the airline strategically, as Air Astana starts to plan for an IPO listing in both London and Kazakhstan.
Passengers flying direct with Air Astana also benefit from seamless immediate connections to Kazakhstan’s second city Almaty and excellent onward connections via the airline’s domestic and international network. From Astana, passengers can benefit from convenient international connections to Urumqi, northwest China; Delhi, India; and the Russian cities of Novosibirsk, Omsk, Tyumen and Yekaterinburg.
