Air Astana restarts flights to Beijing.....

Beijing. Ancient or Modern, Take Your Pick.

Air Astana will resume regular flights to Beijing from Almaty and Astana on Airbus A321 LR.

From 18th March, flights from Astana to Beijing will resume with a frequency of 2 flights per week on Wednesdays and Saturdays, with a further increase in frequency in the summer. The flights will be carried out on A321LR airliners.

Besides, from 2nd March, the airline will increase the frequency of flights from Almaty to Beijing to 4 times a week and plans to increase the frequency to daily flights in the summer season. Airbus A321LR and Airbus A321neo aircraft will be used on the air line between Almaty and Beijing.

Adel Dauletbek, Vice President for Marketing and Sales of Air Astana: "With the beginning of summer navigation, the airline is gradually increasing its cargo capacity in China to meet the growing demand in the country with the largest economy and population. Our passengers have the opportunity to travel on comfortable Airbus A321 LR and A321neo aircraft. We are confident that these flights will be in demand by passengers who are heading to China for business, tourism and other purposes."

Please note that Air Astana's new product Economy Sleeper - similar to the sky couch -  a row of three reserved economy class seats, is available on flights between Beijing and Almaty.  Economy Sleeper passengers will enjoy more personal space and privacy in the dedicated and partitioned section in the front of the economy class cabin. With a guaranteed row of three economy class seats for each guest, you will be able to relax with new heights of comfort, all for just a little bit more than a full economy class fare. And when the time comes to sleep, the row of seats is transformed with a mattress layer and a luxurious duvet and pillow set, ensuring a sound night’s sleep. Guests will enjoy either KCTV, Air Astana’s personal inflight entertainment iPad, or integrated personal in-flight entertainment programme featuring the latest movies and an extensive back catalogue of music and games.

Other benefits of Economy Sleeper include:

  • Access to a Business Class lounge
  • 2PC*23 kg of check-in baggage
  • Priority check-in, boarding, and disembarkation
  • Pre-assigned seating
  • Nomad Club accrual of 125% flight points from ticketed point mileage
