Kazakhstan low-cost carrier FlyArystan will launch eight
additional routes from its new aircraft base in Karaganda later this year
following the delivery of its sixth plane.
The new aircraft, due for delivery on 20 April, will become
the carrier’s first based at Sary-Arka International airport. Additional routes
to follow include Atyrau, Aktau, Kostanay, Kyzylorda, Aktobe, Shymkent, Semey
and Moscow (Zhukovsky).
FlyArystan, a subsidiary of Air Astana, first launched
flights between Karaganda and Almaty in May 2019.
Starting 20 April, the Aktau and Kostanay routes will operate
twice a week, followed by the four-times-weekly Shymkent service on 21 April. Flights
to Atyrau, Aktobe and Kyzylorda will also operate twice a week from 22 April.
The Semey service will operate twice a week starting 23
April, followed by Moscow on 16 May, also twice weekly.
Tim Jordan, MD of FlyArystan, said: “The Karaganda region is
one of the largest industrial regions of the country, with a modern
infrastructure, convenient geographical location and a promising future, the
development of which is impossible without air transport. And we, the Air
Astana group of companies, in particular FlyArystan are ready to contribute to
that continued growth by establishing our first regional aircraft base at
Sary-Arka International airport, Karaganda.”
Janar Jailauova, the airline’s sales and marketing director,
added: “The opening of a base in Karaganda is an important event not only for
residents of the entire region, but also for the Kazakhstan aviation industry
as a whole, since the new FlyArystan base in Karaganda is not only the first
regional base of a low-cost airline, but also demonstrates the growth that can
be achieved by other large regional airports across the country. We are very
pleased that now from the very heart of Kazakhstan it is possible to fly
directly to eight other domestic cities right across the country and Moscow
with our low fares.”
