China Southern adds Astana as second Kazakh airport from Urumqi

The relaunch of China Southern’s service from Urumqi to Astana is not the only route inaugurated between the Kazakh capital and China in the last week, as Air Astana also began operating to Beijing.

  • On 27 August, China Southern resumed operations on the 1,400-kilometre route from Urumqi (URC) in northwest China to Astana (TSE), the capital of Kazakhstan that the airline previously served with a single weekly frequency until March 2007. Following the relaunch, thrice-weekly services are now offered using 737-700s. The Kazakh airline Air Astana already operates the route with twice-weekly frequencies.
