Kazakhstan-based LCC FlyArystan is to expand its international network with services to India and Central Asia being launched.

FlyArystan’s new service from Almaty to New Delhi starts in late September and will be the second service to India with flights from Shymkent to New Delhi having been launched in May 2023. In addition to India, the carrier currently offers services from Kazakhstan to destinations in Azerbaijan, Georgia, Qatar, Kyrgyzstan, Turkey, China, UAE and Uzbekistan.

The airline will  also commence operations between Astana and Dushanbe, the capital of Tajikistan in October and is also evaluating the launch of new services to destinations including Abu Dhabi (UAE), Oman and Saudi Arabia.

As a relative newcomer to the aviation world, the airline started operations in 2019 and currently operates 16 A320 aircraft, with a brace of A320neo to join the fleet by the end of 2023.

“The launch of FlyArystan in May 2019 has proven to be a tremendous success for Air Astana Group in pioneering the rapid development of low-cost markets in Kazakhstan and Central Asia,” said Peter Foster, President and CEO of Air Astana Group. ”Dramatic growth in demand from a completely new segment of passengers in these markets is being followed by an exciting new phase of international network expansion, with the launch of services to cities in dynamic India and Central Asia markets, plus others in the Middle East on the horizon.”
