  • Unlawful Actions of Almaty Airport Resulting in Air Astana Flight Delays

    29 June 2011

    On 29 June 2011 the Air Astana flights KC 855 Almaty – Atyrau, KC 886 Atyrau – Almaty, KC 953 Almaty – Astana, KC 954 Astana – Almaty were delayed with an average delay time of up to 1 hour. Air Astana deeply regrets about the delays and would like to aplogize to its passengers for the inconveniences caused. 

    The passengers are advised to visit the Arrivals and Departures section of  www.airastana.com or contact the Air Astana Call Centre on +7 (727) 244 44 77 for up-to-date status of the flights.

    “These delays were caused due to the unlawful actions of the Almaty Airport staff preventing the Air Astana pilots from performing their duties by withdrawing the latter’s airport passes. It should be noted that our flight crew are qualified both locally and internationally, and hold all proper licenses for operating flights”, explains Mergali Alzhanov, Director Flight Operations, Air Astana.
