Etihad launches first flight to Kazakhstan capital
Etihad Airways, the national airline of the United Arab Emirates, has announced that it has rolled out its maiden flight to Astana in Kazakhstan from its Abu Dhabi home base.
According to sources, flight EY294 departed from Abu Dhabi on Thursday morning (May 7) at 10.05am and landed at 4.35pm the same day at Astana airport.
The sources further added that Kazakhstan capital is now served, once a week from Abu Dhabi, with the airline using an Airbus A319 aircraft.
According to reports, Astana is the second destination in Kazakhstan to be served by Etihad and the airline’s 52nd across its expanding worldwide flight network.
To facilitate the launch, Etihad’s current four times a week service to Almaty has been reduced to three times a week.
The timing of the new weekly service provides air travellers convenient onward connections, via Abu Dhabi, onto a significant number of other key destinations across Etihad’s global network, particularly across the Middle East and the Indian sub-continent.
Etihad operates a two-class Airbus A319 configured to carry 110 passengers with 20 seats in business class and 90 in economy class.
