Air Astana launches service to New Delhi
Air Astana will launch direct flights from Astana, the capital of Kazakhstan to New Delhi, the capital of India on 2 July 2017.
The service will be operated three times a week using Airbus A320 and Embraer 190 aircraft, and will complement the Kazakhstan national carrier’s daily flights between Almaty and New Delhi that were launched in September 2004.
The award-winning carrier offers travellers from New Delhi a range of convenient flight connections in Astana, with services to international destinations including Moscow, St. Petersburg, Istanbul, Kiev, Baku and Tbilisi as well as to many cities across Kazakhstan.
Free EXPO entry
Like all other Air Astana international passengers travelling through Astana between 1 June and 10 September 2017, users of the new service will be entitled to free admission tickets for EXPO 2017 Astana – Future Energy.
Air Astana operates flights to more than 60 domestic and international routes using a fleet of Boeing 767, 757, Airbus A319, A320, A320neo, A321 and Embraer 190 aircraft. The airline became the first carrier from Russia, the Commonwealth of Independent States (the CIS) and Eastern Europe to be awarded the prestigious 4-Star rating by Skytrax at its World Airline Awards 2012 and was also named ‘The Best Airline in Central Asia and India’ that year. Both achievements were repeated in 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016.
