President of Kazakhstan instructs to increase number of direct international flights

The President of the Republic of Kazakhstan Kassym-Jomart Tokayev, has instructed to develop air traffic with leading cities of the world, Kazinform correspondent reports.

“An important issue is the increase in the number of international flights. At the moment there are less than 30 international direct flights from Nur-Sultan which is not enough”, Mr. Tokayev said at a meeting on the capital city development.

According to him, the city of Nur-Sultan reasonably positions itself as the international center. Thus, it is important to launch direct flights between Nur-Sultan and the leading cities of the world and international financial centers.

“It is necessary to open the sky, and this is my assignment to the Government”, the President emphasized.

As Kazinform previously informed, Beibut Atamkulov Minister of Industry and Infrastructure Development spoke about the airlines which plan to enter the Kazakhstani market.

He also informed that Kazakhstan carriers are going to launch flights to such large cities as Shanghai (2020), Singapore (2020) and New York (2021).
