By Nargiz Sadikhova - Trend:

Kazakhstan’s Air Astana is reducing the number of flights implemented to South Korea, Trend reports with reference to the Air Astana.

The company said that the decision was made based on the requirements of the aviation authorities of South Korea.

Now, the flights from Almaty to Seoul will be carried out once a week on Mondays. The flights previously carried out on Fridays will be halted.

Earlier this month, Kazakhstan announced a decision to resume international flights to a number of countries. The flights have been gradually resumed to Turkey, China, South Korea, Thailand, Georgia and Japan as of Jun. 20, 2020.

In March 2020, in order to prevent coronavirus spread in Kazakhstan, the number of flights was reduced by 438 flights per week on international destinations on 97 routes, which makes up 99 percent of all international flights implemented.

Additionally, all domestic flights have been canceled and no regular air services operated in the country over April 2020.

Starting May 1, 2020, the ban on implementation of flights was lifted completely for domestic flights and is stage-by-stage being lifted on international flights, leading local airline companies to work on restoration of flights operation.
