Air Astana launches direct flights from Frankfurt to Almaty

Air Astana, Kazakhstan’s award-winning carrier, will introduce direct flights from Frankfurt to Almaty on 2nd October, with departure times optimised to meet connections from the UK cities of London Heathrow, Birmingham, and Manchester by partner Lufthansa.  Both airlines operate from Frankfurt Terminal 1 providing seamless connections in both directions. Frankfurt to Almaty joins Air Astana’s network twice weekly initially, increasing to three a week from 26th October, on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, operated by its newest fleet addition – the Airbus A321LR (long range). 


An early morning arrival from Almaty to Frankfurt also enables convenient connections across European and North American destinations operated by Lufthansa.


The new service from Almaty, Kazakhstan’s second city, follows the resumption of services from Nur-Sultan to Frankfurt in August.  It also complements additional services from Frankfurt to Uralsk, taking the number of flights from Kazakhstan to Germany’s premier commercial centre to eight per week.


I’m delighted to announce the increase of services between Kazakhstan and Germany, which deliver maximum connectivity with partner airlines across Europe and North America,” said Air Astana Vice-President Richard Ledger.
