    Air Astana has set up measures to help passengers travelling to Thailand with free rebooking, or cancellations for anyone booked to travel until end of September. To cancel a booking or to change the date of departure on the route Almaty-Bangkok-Almaty, passengers now can apply to the place of purchase of the ticket, where they will be provided with all possible assistance.

The Thai Government is taking all measures to resolve the situation and assured in the absence of a direct threat to tourists, but at the same time recommends to be careful and avoid places of large gatherings. We hope that our passengers, will soon be able to travel without any further fear and enjoy their planned holidays.
