  • Air Astana to Launch Almaty – Ho Chi Minh City Service

    22 October 2012

    Air Astana will launch a new service from Almaty to Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam on 2nd January 2013. The outbound flight will be operated via Bangkok, with a total flight time of nine hours. Inbound non-stop flights from Ho Chi Minh City to Almaty will take only seven hours. Flights will be operated by Boeing 757 twice weekly on Wednesdays and Fridays.

    The new flights will not only serve passengers from Kazakhstan, but are also expected to attract traffic originating from Russia, Central Asia and Caucasus.

    “The start of the new service to Ho Chi Minh City reflects the continuing expansion of Air Astana’s Asian network, which already includes Bangkok, Beijing, Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur and Seoul. Tourists from Kazakhstan can enjoy year round holidays in Vietnam, which is famous for its white sand beaches, exotic islands, unspoilt nature, ancient temples, delicious cuisine, hospitality and good value. The convenient Air Astana flight schedule offers passengers plenty of time to explore Vietnam, with connections from Ho Chi Minh City to the capital, Hanoi and popular tourism destinations like Nha Trang. With a simple visa process and the multitude of attractions offered in Vietnam, I’m confident that Ho Chi Minh City route will quickly prove to be very popular”, comments Ibrahim Canliel, Vice President, Marketing & Sales, Air Astana.

    The minimum cost of a round trip economy class ticket from Almaty to Ho Chi Minh, including all fees, is 88,000 KZT and a business class ticket is 348,000 KZT.

    Tickets can be booked and purchased on www.airastana.com or via our Call Centre at +7 (727) 244 44 77 or Air Astana Ticket Offices in Kazakhstan and in appointed travel agents.
