The number of flights between Kazakhstan and the United Arab Emirates is growing.
The number of direct passenger flights between cities in Kazakhstan and the United Arab Emirates is increasing. This decision was reached during the visit of the President of Kazakhstan Kassym-Jomart Tokayev in Abu Dhabi.
Thus, from January 22 low-cost carrier Wizz Air Abu Dhabi has increased the number of flights between Abu Dhabi and Almaty from 3 to 4 flights a week. The flights are operated by Airbus A320/A321 type aircraft on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays.
Starting from January 26 flydubai will increase the number of flights per week on the route Dubai-Astana from 10 to 14 flights per week and from January 28 on the Dubai-Almaty route from 10 to 14 flights per week.
Starting February 28 flydubai will resume flying from Shymkent to Dubai with 2 flights per week (Wednesday, Saturday). Flydubai flights will be operated with B-737 aircraft.
The increased number of flights will promote the further development of tourism, business, trade and economic cooperation between the two countries.
As previously reported, the Russian low cost airline “Pobeda” (part of the group “Aeroflot”) will resume regular passenger flights from Moscow to Dubai starting from January 28, 2023. The flights will be performed four times a week from “Vnukovo” airport.
From February 6, the frequency will increase to five times a week, and on February 21 flights will be daily. Flights to all international destinations, including the UAE, were suspended by “Pobeda” in March. Pobeda’s fleet consists of American Boeing 737-800 NGs.
Tourists arriving in the United Arab Emirates no longer need to show a vaccination certificate or negative PCR test results to board a flight. At the same time, passengers traveling with a stopover in Dubai must follow the requirements of their final destinations.
