Kazakhstan flag carrier Air Astana is celebrating 20 years flying to Dubai

Dubai was amongst Air Astana’s earliest international destinations after the airline launched in 2002.

Initial services from Almaty to Dubai began in August 2002 with twice weekly flights and it followed with additional departures from Nur-Sultan in 2007.

The number of passengers travelling on flights between Kazakhstan and Dubai has dramatically increased over the past 20 years, with less than 7,000 carried in 2002 and over 101,000 already carried during the first half of 2022.

“The UAE offers a wide range of leisure attractions and business opportunities, with Dubai proving to be a very popular destination for Kazakhstan travelers over the past 20 years,” said Adel Dauletbek, Vice-President, Marketing and Sales, Air Astana.

In the coming winter season, flight schedules to and from Dubai will be improved.

Frequencies are scheduled to peak at 17 per week by the end of 2022.

Kazakhstan has re-established a visa-free regime for citizens of 57 countries, including the UAE, for up to 30 days to enter-exit and stay.

Passengers arriving to Kazakhstan from foreign countries are not required to provide a certificate of vaccination or a negative test result for Covid-19.
