Air Arabia adds its third destination in Kazakhstan

  • Air Arabia has made Shymkent (CIT) its third destination in Kazakhstan and its 91st worldwide, adding to its existing operations to Almaty and Astana, to become the only operator in the UAE to serve three cities in the country. Launched from its base in Sharjah (SHJ) on 15 March, the A320-operated services will be flown twice-weekly (Wednesdays and Saturdays) and will face no direct competition. “Kazakhstan is a rapidly emerging economy with a very bright future, and we have accordingly prioritised building our route network in the country,” said Adel Ali, Group Chief Executive Officer, Air Arabia. “As two major oil producers, there are obvious links between the UAE and Kazakhstan, and we also see real potential for broader trade and tourism ties, which makes us confident of the success of this new service to Shymkent.”
