FlyArystan launches new India flights


FlyArystan, Kazakhstan’s low-cost airline, continues to expand its international network with new services to India and Central Asia being launched in the next two months.

FlyArystan, part of the Air Astana Group, operates a fleet of 16 Airbus A320 and A320 neo aircraft, and it will add two more A320 neos by the end of 2023 to support its ambitious international network expansion.

A new route from Almaty to New Delhi will launch in late September. This will be the second service to India, with flights from Shymkent to New Delhi launched in May.

In addition to India, the carrier currently offers services from Kazakhstan to destinations in Azerbaijan, Georgia, Qatar, Kyrgyzstan, Turkey, China, the UAE and Uzbekistan.

FlyArystan will additionally commence operations between Astana and Dushanbe, the capital of Tajikistan, in October, and it is also evaluating the launch of new services to destinations including Abu Dhabi in the UAE, Oman and Saudi Arabia for the next stage of its network expansion.

“The launch of FlyArystan in May 2019 has proven to be a tremendous success for Air Astana Group in pioneering the rapid development of low-cost markets in Kazakhstan and Central Asia,” said Peter Foster, president and CEO of Air Astana Group.

“Dramatic growth in demand from a completely new segment of passengers in these markets is being followed by an exciting new phase of international network expansion, with the launch of services to cities in dynamic India and Central Asia markets, plus others in the Middle East on the horizon.”
