Commencing June 01, 2018, Air Astana, the Skytrax award-winning national carrier of Kazakhstan will offer daily, non-stop flights from Nazarbayev International Airport in Astana (TSE) to London Heathrow (LHR). The additional frequencies, on Wednesdays and Fridays, are already available for sale.

“We are delighted to have finally secured daily flight status on what is such a prestigious and popular route – the only direct service linking the UK to Kazakhstan,” said Air Astana CEO and President Peter Foster. “London has consistently grown in significance, with both business and leisure travelers and it comes at an opportune time too for the airline strategically, as we start to plan for an IPO listing in both London and Kazakhstan.”

Passengers flying direct with Air Astana also benefit from seamless immediate connections to Kazakhstan’s second city Almaty, as well as excellent onwards connections via the airline’s domestic and international network. From Astana, passengers can enjoy convenient international connections to Urumqi, northwest China; Delhi, India; and the Russian cities of Novosibirsk, Omsk, Tyumen and Yekaterinburg.

Air Astana offers a three-class product aboard its comfortable Boeing 757 aircraft, with 16 seats in Business, 108 in Economy and up to 12 unique Economy Sleeper Seats, allowing for more personal space and privacy with a guaranteed row of three seats in the front of the Economy class cabin.
