Aeroflot returns to Kazakhstan

March 7, 2014

The Russian airline Aeroflot will resume flights to Kazakhstan after a few years’ break, the company says in a press release.

“The airline is launching a regular flight between Moscow and Karaganda from March 10,” the press release says.

“In the post-Soviet period, Aeroflot has not been able to fly to Kazakh for a number of reasons. For years, the company has been making strenuous efforts to resume flights to Kazakhstan. (…) The opening of the first flight is a great victory of the company which is against any monopoly in the air transportation services,” the press release says.

Karaganda is the administrative center of the Karaganda Region, central Kazakhstan.

The new flight will be operated daily from the Sheremetyevo airport of Moscow with an Airbus A319.
