A direct connection to Central Asia will promote interesting opportunities for business cooperation between the two countries, as well as tourism.

PRAGUE – After a four-year break, it will be possible to use direct flights from Prague to Astana. This May, SCAT Airlines is to launch its service to Kazakhstan scheduled twice a week every Wednesday and Saturday operated by Boeing 737-800 aircraft for 189 passengers.

“Kazakhstan is an important market for us in terms of both outbound and inbound tourism. In 2019, almost 30 thousand passengers travelled between Prague and destinations in Kazakhstan. A number of Czech companies are active on the Kazakh export market, primarily from the engineering and chemical sectors. Long-term, Kazakhs have favoured Czech spas, while Czech tourists may find exploring unique Kazakhstan very attractive,” Jaroslav Filip, Prague Airport Aviation Business Director, said.

Kazakhstan is a diverse country characterised by its blending of several cultural heritages. It is the largest landlocked country in the world, with an area of over 2.7 million square kilometres. Kazakhstan is no longer just a country of steppes and lakes, of which there are almost 50 thousand. Modern Astana boasts wide boulevards and glass skyscrapers. Its visitors should not miss the observation tower of Baiterek, the futuristic entertainment centre of Khan Shatyr, and the unique atmosphere of the Palace of Peace and Harmony.

“Direct flights from Kazakhstan to the Czech Republic are among our passengers most anticipated destinations. We are glad that this beloved and popular route is being resumed after 4 long years, and SCAT Airlines will once again be able to provide the opportunity to travel to one of the most romantic and cozy cities on the planet.
