Almaty-based carrier Air Astana has this week celebrated 20 years of flying between the UK & Kazakhstan, handling over 450,000 passengers in that time.

The carrier was keen to celebrate by offering 20% off airfares between December 11-17, in the hope of acquiring additional business on the London Heathrow-Almaty route.

Without further ado, let’s get into it…

Commenting on this milestone was Richard Ledger, Senior Regional Manager for the UK & Ireland, Western Europe and Americas at Air Astana:

“Twenty successful years is a significant milestone for the airline, one which I’m considerably proud of.”

“Promoting Kazakhstan as a destination to British travellers is a unique but rewarding challenge and this anniversary only highlights the fruits borne of this mission.”

“Not only that but facilitating travel for Kazakh expats living in Britain with up to five weekly flights between the two countries demonstrates the strength of partnership between the two countries.”

“As a ‘thank you’ to all of its loyal customers, and a ‘nice to meet you’ to all prospective visitors to Kazakhstan, Air Astana is offering 20% off all bookings made between 11 – 17 December 2023 from London Heathrow to Almaty, Astana and Aktau.”

Looking ahead, all eyes will be on how future services from the UK will perform for the carrier, as well as whether there is additional scope to expand this going into the future.

To the next 20 years, with Air Astana from the UK!
