Kazakhstan Direct Flights From Garuda Indonesia

A transit hub for services into Europe and beyond could be established by the national airline of Indonesia at one of Kazakhstan’s international airports.

Could Kazakhstan be the upcoming international stop for Garuda Indonesia? Irfan Setiaputra, the CEO of Indonesia’s national airline, met with Daniyar Sarekenov, the ambassador of Kazakhstan to Indonesia, earlier this week to explore establishing flights between the two countries.

Both delegates met to examine the idea of using one of Kazakhstan’s international airports as a transit hub for Garuda Indonesia, according to the country’s ministry of foreign affairs. The Ministry of Transportation applauded the potential for improved transit between the two nations through the nation’s open sky policy, which would be advantageous to both the carrier and tour operators in Indonesia and Kazakhstan. Before considering the prospect of launching further transit hubs or direct connections between the two countries, Kazakhstan plans to use Air Astana’s future Almaty-Seoul-Denpasar stopover service to measure popularity.

According to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, “it is noted that this initiative will create favorable conditions for Kazakh and Indonesian travelers.” Air Astana is anticipated to make further announcements regarding the new route soon.

Growth in Kazakh aviation

Kazakhstan’s civil aviation authority (AAK) declared earlier this year that it would extend its open sky policy to carriers traveling between Asia and Europe, strengthening its airports as stopping hubs, while Russian airspace was restricted for several airlines. The policy eliminates flying limitations and grants airlines fifth freedom rights on international routes that are not operated by any operators located in Kazakhstan.

For the most part, the plan has been a success for the nation and its carriers; Air Astana has experienced tremendous development despite losing the majority of the Russian aviation market. CEO Peter Foster mentioned the carrier’s plans to take advantage of the expanding market opportunity for a stopover service between China and Europe in a March interview with Reuters.”Prior to the start of the war in Ukraine, a lot of traffic in general, going in the western direction, whether that was going to Europe or to the U.S., was traveling from this region via the Russian Federation,” Foster told Reuters.

“Clearly, that is not the situation anymore. As a result, there has been a change in the direction of gravity, and we are in an excellent position to benefit from it.

season of summer

The airline achieved a record-breaking $78.4 million after-tax profit, with revenues surging to $1.03 billion for the fiscal year, in part due to the fast expansion of its low-cost subsidiary, FlyArystan.

Holidaymakers are eagerly awaiting further information about the airline’s planned Bali (DPS) service, but the company is already preparing to resume service to Greece, Turkey, Montenegro, and Georgia before the peak summer travel season. Almaty to Heraklion (HER) flights will start on June 1, while flights to Bodrum (BJV) and Podgorica (TGD) will take off on June 2 and June 3, respectively. Beginning on June 6, Air Astana will operate five weekly flights to Batumi (BUS) from the airline’s hub in Almaty.
