has cleared the way for the airline to start charter operations to
additional European destinations.

flights to Heraklion and Barcelona will be served by Boeing
757-200, as well as Boeing 767-300ER at peak times.
flights to respective locations will be operated on 14, 20 and
21 June, with 10-day rotations.

charter flights, Air Astana will launch new scheduled services to
