FlyArystan announced the expansion of its base in Almaty with the launch of new flights from Almaty to both Aktobe and Kostanay.
FlyArystan is also adding significant capacity on existing routes in time for the peak summer season. When comparing the planned destinations for summer 2020 versus summer 2019 FlyArystan has doubled destinations served from Almaty from 6 to 12 and nearly doubled summer seat capacity with an increase in weekly seats of 90% to the southern capital.
The continued network expansion of FlyArystan is made possible due to the arrival of its fifth aircraft, joining the fleet in March 2020. This will be the third aircraft to join the airline’s growing aircraft fleet in Almaty.
The airline will launch a new daily service between Almaty and Kostan as of 12 March this year. In addition and starting from April 20, three weekly roundtrip services will be introduced from Almaty to Aktobe.
Other highlights of the additional flying announced by FlyArystan for summer 2020 include the following significant increases of capacity and flights for summer 2020 versus summer 2019:
- Almaty-Shymkent-Almaty services from daily to 13x weekly. An 86% increase in capacity.
- Almaty-Pavlodar-Almaty services from daily to 10x weekly. A 43% increase in capacity.
- Almaty-Nur-Sultan-Almaty services from 2x daily to 3x daily. A 50% increase in capacity.
- Almaty-Karaganda-Almaty services from daily to 9x weekly. A 29% increase in capacity.
Janar Jailauova, FlyArystan Director Sales and Marketing, said:
“FlyArystan started operations just before the summer last year. Hundreds of thousands of people were able to explore with us then and with the growth of aircraft in Almaty this year, with new routes and more capacity for the summer even more people will be able to take to the skies to explore or to catch up with relatives and friends.”
