  • Air Astana Congratulates Veterans of the Great Patriotic War on Victory Day

    6 May 2011

    Air Astana is assisting the veterans of the Great Patriotic War (World War II) by providing them with the opportunity to see their friends and fellow soldiers throughout the various cities of Kazakhstan and countries of the CIS.  Participants and disabled veterans of World War II may use this opportunity to obtain free tickets on the airline's regular flights to any location in Kazakhstan as well as selected cities within the CIS.  Air Astana has provided this service since 2002 as a tribute to the memory and heroic deeds of Kazakhstan's citizens who participated in the war.  Starting in 2008, WWII veterans received free tickets between May 1st and June 15th.  Two years ago, Air Astana as a continued gesture of our appreciation extended this free service to include the entire year. Now, we are pleased to announce that between May 1st and June 30th of each year, the airline will provide a 50% discount for a passenger who accompanies a WWII veteran. 

    Additional fees and charges at the airport are not included in this discount and are the responsibility of the passengers themselves.  The accompanying passenger must stay with the veteran for the entire route.

    For reservations call our Reservation and Information Сentre in Almaty on +7 (727) 244 44 77 or contact the ticket sales office in your city or the nearest travel agent that sells Air Astana airline tickets. This offer is for all Air Astana regular flights on routes within the Republic of Kazakhstan and the CIS, including the newly established routes to St. Petersburg, Tashkent, Samara and Tbilisi.

    This offer is valid for the following:

    • All WWII veterans who provide proper ID certification as provided by the corresponding government entities.
    • Other categories of pensioners who participated in the war effort are required to present the proper ID certification as notarized by the government entities that provide those pensions.

    Only participants born no later than 1936 qualify for this offer.

    Air Astana'sVictory Day program has proven to be very popular among these veterans. Over the past two years, 4,746 veterans have travelled free of charge on Air Astana flights.
