FlyArystan Carried Over 455,000 Passengers in First 6 Months

FlyArystan carried more than 455,000 passengers, with a load factor of 94%, during its first six months of operations.

Since commencing flights on 1 May 2019, the low-cost airline - a division of Air Astana, has made more than 2,500 flights, of which 93% were completed on time.

The Almaty-based airline has also sold more than 600,000 seats since starting operations, with the difference between flown and booked being forward bookings for the coming months.

FlyArystan now operates 10 domestic routes within Kazakhstan with another 3 routes joining the network by the end of the year.

Its first international route, Nur-Sultan Ė Moscow (Zhukovsky) will be amongst those new routes and commences with the addition of the airline adding its 4th A320 aircraft in December 2019.

The FlyArystan fleet is expected to grow to at least 10 aircraft by the end of 2020 with additional aircraft bases being launched in Q2 2020 at both Karaganda and Aktobe.

As a consequence of this fleet growth FlyArystan expects to be operating approximately 40 routes across its network by the end of 2020.

Zhanar Zhailauova, Director for Sales and Marketing of FlyArystan, said, ďFlyArystan offers fares from just 3,999 KZT (c.US$10). Of 170 passengers on average on each flight, 95 (56%) passengers are buying seats at our lowest 4 fare levels with just 15 passengers (9%) buying fares in our highest 4 fare levels with the balance buying seats in the middle fare levels. We know that some people, including our competitors are having trouble believing that our fares can be that low but the continuing growth in the domestic market and the many tens of thousands of first time flyers are testament to the FlyArystan effect that we are seeing wherever we fly. On average across our network 47% of all seats sold have been sold for less than 10,000 KZT (US$26).Ē

The FlyArystan fleet currently consists of three Airbus A320 aircraft with a 180-seat configuration, with an average age of 6 years. By 2022, it is planned to increase the airline's fleet to at least 15 aircraft.
