Air Astana, the flag carrier of the Republic of Kazakhstan, will be expanding its Asian network with the launch of flights between Almaty and Kuala Lumpur on 31st October 2009. The weekly flight will be operated every Saturday by Boeing 767 aircraft, with a flight time of eight hours.

Kuala Lumpur will become Air Astana’s seventh international destination in Asia and the Gulf, with existing services operating between Almaty and Bangkok (three times a week), Beijing (five times a week), Delhi (three times a week), Dubai (nine times a week), Seoul (two times a week) and Urumqi (two times a week).
