Air Astana launched a new direct service today between its base in Kazakhstan and Bangkok.
The twice-weekly service operates every Monday and Thursday, and complements the carrier’s existing daily service from Almaty to Bangkok.
The Astana–Bangkok route is served by the Boeing 767-300ER, which features a two-class configuration with 30 in business and 193 in economy.
According to Air Astana, the new service helps to connect Astana with Bangkok and onwards to destinations including Baku, Beijing, Bishkek, London, Omsk, St Petersburg and Tashkent – all of which have been introduced since 2012.
“With business and leisure traffic between Kazakhstan and Thailand continuing to grow strongly, we are delighted to launch this new service between the two capital cities,” said Peter Foster, president of Air Astana.
Flight KC231 departs Astana at 0135 and arrives in Bangkok at 0935. The return service, flight KC232 will then take off again from Bangkok at 1105 and arrive back in Astana at 1815.
