Happy Anniversary Air Astana

Congratulations to all my friends at Air Astana. Celebrating its 10th anniversary year, Kazakhstan’s flag carrier, Air Astana, has just become the first airline from Russia, the CIS or Eastern Europe to win the prestigious Skytrax 4-star rating in the Skytrax World Airline Awards 2012. Air Astana now ranks amongst the world’s best airlines for safety and passenger service alongside other 4-Star rated airlines including British Airways, Emirates, Etihad, Lufthansa, Qantas and Thai Airways. With 787 Dreamliners on order, Air Astana flies an all-western fleet comprising Boeing 767s, Boeing 757s, Airbus A320s, Embraer 190s and Fokker 50s and is a full member of the International Air Transport Association (IATA).

    1. They really are a very good airline. And you should, it’s a fascinating place that seems to get better with every visit. They have introduced visa on arrival now and are trialling a visa-free system next month for OECD countries. They also have interline agreements with Malaysia Airlines, Thai and Cathay (starting next month) so you can book tickets and baggage from Oz right through to Almaty. Easy peasy.
