Etihad launches first flight to Kazakhstan capital

12 May 2009

Etihad Airways has launched its maiden flight to Astana, its second destination in Kazakhstan, from its Abu Dhabi home base. Etihad's current four times a week service to Almaty has been reduced to three times a week to facilitate the launch. The Kazakhstan capital is now served, once a week from Abu Dhabi, with the airline using a two-class Airbus A319 configured to carry 110 passengers with 20 seats in business class and 90 in economy class.
