‘Open sky’ mode to be introduced at several airports in Kazakhstan

Beibut Atamkulov, Minister of Industry and Infrastructure Development, Kazakhstan, announced the introduction of the “open skies” mode at some airports in Kazakhstan.

“We will introduce an ‘open skies’ mode at the airports in Nur-Sultan, Almaty, Shymkent, Ust-Kamenogorsk, Pavlodar, Kokshetau, Petropavlovsk and Semey,” the Minister said at a government meeting on Tuesday.

In Nur Sultan, the ‘open sky’ mode was introduced back in 2017. During these three years, Kazakh and foreign air carriers have launched 19 new routes, including ones to Tokyo, Warsaw, Budapest and Helsinki, Mr. Atamkulov said.

“A number of foreign air carriers have their plans to enter the Kazakhstan civil aviation market. In the near future, the arrival of airlines such as Qatar Airways, Emirates, Pobeda and others is expected,” the Minister added.

The ‘open skies’ mode makes it possible to remove restrictions on flights to these airports for foreign air carriers.

Earlier it was reported that the United States hopes to sign an agreement on the principle of ‘open skies’ and this country is ready to assist Kazakhstan for business development.
