Kazakhstan low-cost airline FlyArystan announces the start of sales for 8 new routes from its new aircraft base in Karaganda. Starting April 20 of this year, the sixth FlyArystan aircraft will join the fleet of the fast growing Kazakh low cost carrier and will become the first one based at the Sary-Arka International Airport, Karaganda.
The new routes to be served from Karaganda are to Atyrau, Aktau, Kostanay, Kyzylorda, Aktobe, Shymkent, Semey and Moscow (Zhukovsky). They will join the existing Karaganda service to Almaty that was started in May 2019 with the launch of FlyArystan.
Sales for the new route to Moscow (Zhukovsky) is expected to start in early-mid March once all necessary regulatory approvals for the route are received.
At a press briefing in Karaganda today Tim Jordan, Managing Director 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, sales and marketing director said, “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 8 other domestic cities right across the country, & Moscow (Zhukovsky), with our low fares. That is great for Karaganda, the region and people all across the country.”
