QAZAQ AIR to carry over 380 thousand passengers in 2019

The main event for the airline this year was the relocation from Almaty to Nur-Sultan in order to create a more extensive air service between the regions of Kazakhstan. This step allowed the airline to increase the efficiency of its use of the air fleet and open up the possibility for Kazakhstanis to travel even more conveniently between regions within the country.

In 2019, the airline will perform more than 6,000 flights and carry more than 380 thousand passengers (an increase of 24% compared to 2018). Flights are operated in 12 regular destinations. QAZAQ AIR’s fleet has replenished with 2 new aircraft and today consists of 5 De Havilland Dash-8-Q400NG aircraft (formerly known as the Bombardier DHC-8-Q400NG), whose average age is less than 3 years.

QAZAQ AIR successfully passed the 2nd Operational Safety Audit of the International Air Transport Association (IATA) for compliance with IOSA (IATA Operational Safety Audit) standards. Thus, the validity of the certificate and the status of the airline’s IOSA operator was extended until November 2021. Successful passing of the next IOSA audit confirmed the commitment of all QAZAQ AIR personnel to the highest safety standards. The airline became the official 293rd member of IATA – International Air Transport Association.

QAZAQ AIR in 2020 plans to expand the route network of regional transportation within Kazakhstan. In order to ensure transport accessibility of socially significant destinations and the development of domestic tourism, the airline will operate regular flights from Nur-Sultan to Petropavlovsk and to Taldykorgan.
