flydubai expands network in Central Asia with flights to Astana
02 November, 2015
flydubai today marked the launch of its first flight to Astana, the airline’s third destination in Kazakhstan. With two flights a week to Astana, flydubai is the first Dubai-based carrier to provide a direct link to the Kazakhstan capital. flydubai launched services to Kazakhstan in September 2014 with direct links to Almaty and Shymkent. The airline now offers two flights a week to both Astana and Almaty and one flight a week to Shymkent. The launch sees flydubai’s footprint in Central Asia and the Caucasus region expand to nine destinations, with 60 flights a week to Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Turkmenistan.
