Flights delayed at airports of Astana and Almaty

The airports in Astana and Almaty, Kazakhstan, are operating normally, but a number of flights are delayed. Due to adverse weather conditions, additional time is required for the de-icing treatment of liners.

“Due to the low temperature on the apron of the airport, there is not enough time for the anti-icing fluid to process the aircraft,” the press service commented on Sputnik Kazakhstan.

On Wednesday, a number of flights for departure and arrival are delayed at the Astana International Airport. Deviations from the flight schedule are observed with the flights operating by such air carriers, as Air Astana, SCAT Airlines and Bek Air (on arrival: Almaty – Astana, Aktau – Astana, Aktobe – Astana, Ust-Kamenogorsk – Astana, Kyzylorda – Astana and others; on departure: Astana – Taraz, Astana – Almaty and Astana – Atyrau). The reason is late arrival of flights from other regions, the airport noted.

Heavy snowfall hit Almaty on Wednesday. Now the Almaty International Airport is also operating normally, the runways are promptly cleared of snow.

“At the moment, the air temperature in the airport area is -6C degrees, visibility is 650/250 meters. At the same time, changes in the flight schedule are possible. They are due to the fact that Air Astana does anti-icing of liners before departure, for diving it needs extra time,” the Almaty International Airport said.

You can learn about the delay of flights of Kazakhstan airlines on the online flight board, in the airport information desk or in the airlines’ call centers.
