Baku, Azerbaijan, Oct.8
By Nargiz Sadikhova - Trend:
President of Kazakhstan Kassym Jomart Tokayev has ordered to increase a number of international flights implemented from Nur-Sultan, Trend reports with reference to Kazakh media.
According to Tokayev, currently the number of direct international flights operated from country’s capital Nur-Sultan does not exceed 30 routes.
“This is not enough. The capital is reasonably positioning itself as an international center. In order to become one, it is important to link the capital with leading cities and international financial centers via flights,” Tokayev said.
In this regard, Tokayev gave the corresponding order to the government of the country.
Previously this week, Kazakhstan's Minister of Industry and Infrastructural Development of Kazakhstan Beibut Atamkulov said that Qatar Airways (Doha city, 2020), Emirates (Dubai, 2021), China Eastern (Shanghai, 2021), Ural Airlines, Pobeda and other aircompanies are to start operating in Kazakhstan.
