Almaty residents offered to fly for free to Borovoye, Kazakhstan

www.Chocotravel.com, a website
selling air tickets, and the Kazakhstan’s
national airline, Air Astana, continue their action when any passer-by can
suddenly fly to meet some adventures. Five Kazakhs have already unexpectedly visited
Astana, Almaty, Shymkent, Aktau and Kazan. At this time, one had to find a
person for a trip to Borovoye,
Kazakhstan
.

“Our flight was leaving at six in the morning, so it meant this person was
to be found at about
​​two in the morning to have time to get to the airport”, Nikolai
Mazentsev, manager of the www.Chocotravel.comwebsite, tells. “The problem is that at this time the streets of our city are
deserted and passers-by in this time of the day try to meet other passers-by as
little as possible on their way. So we decided to go to a bar or a nightclub for
such a man”.

In the bar, the crew faced with another problem, as there were more
people there than we needed. If you normally search for a man of the program during
several hours, the tipsy crowd of The Rocket bar was fairly easy to contact. As
a result, we decided to take a lady named Aziza, who worked as a waiter in this
institution. She had never been in Borovoye, moreover, she had never flown in
an airplane.

 “Aziza was fairly light coat, and
the air temperature down below twenty degrees Celsius in Borovoye,” Alexey
Rudnev,  Programme Director, shares his
impressions. “Along the way, it turned out, that Aziza has a sister in the
capital city, so she could fetch down a jacket and a winter cap, and, when
being at the resort, we had to buy a warm tracksuit for her”.

A Rixos Borovoe five-star hotel was responsible for a meeting and
cultural program at the resort. They settled the lady in the presidential
suite, arranged skating on balloons, ATV and snowboard on the frozen Shchuchye Lake for her. Besides, Aziza visited all
the memorable places, plenty knurled dog and reindeer-driven sledges, and also
visited the residence of Santa Claus.

As usual, the project is organized with minimal marketing budget. In
addition to www.Chocotravel.com and
Air Astana, the permanent partners include an AnyKey Studio, KazCom Bank and Tengrinews
portal. In the near future, the organizers promise to find a new “hero” to fly
somewhere.
