Tuesday, Nov 01, 2022 0

Kazakhstan carrier Air Astana will launch scheduled services linking its Almaty hub and Sri Lankan capital Colombo beginning on 3 December 2021.

The twice weekly service will be operated by Airbus A321LR aircraft on Tuesdays and Fridays.

Departure from Almaty will be at 05:30, arriving in Colombo at 11:30, with the return flight from Colombo at 12:30 and arriving back in Almaty at 19:40, all times local.

Return airfares in economy class start at US$512, including airport, fuel and other charges.

“Air Astana successfully operated charter flights between Almaty and Sri Lanka between February and April 2021, with almost 3,000 passengers carried on the route,” said Air Astana Sales Director, Islam Sekerbekov.

“Given the proven popularity of the earlier service, we are very pleased to be returning to the market with regular scheduled flights.”

Sri Lanka accepts all vaccines.

Unvaccinated passengers, including children above two years old, are required to provide a negative PCR test certificate obtained no more than 72 hours prior to departure.
