Kazakhstan-based Air Astana is thinking of introducing a direct scheduled flight connecting Alma-Ata, Astana, and Yekaterinburg, the company’s Moscow representation’s director Evgeniy Krutov reported to Deputy Minister for International and Foreign Economic Relations of Sverdlovsk Region Boris Shipitsin.

Evgeniy Krutov said the Kazakh air carrier operated scheduled flights to India, Thailand, China, South Korea, the United Arab Emirates, and a number of other destinations, so the company’s potential partners might be interested in their transit traffic services.

Boris Shipitsin remarked the lack of flights that could connect Sverdlovsk Region and Kazakhstan was a mistake, as Kazakhstan is the region’s major trade partner.
