Flights to Phuket from Kazakhstan hub Almaty resume today

Today marked the return of Air Astana flights to Phuket from Almaty, the biggest metropolis in Kazakhstan, as 165 travellers arrived on a aircraft this morning. The flight marks a resumption of travel from the previous Soviet Union republic and the current 9th largest country in the world by space.
Remote plans to proceed and ramp up the route with up to four flights per week to and from Phuket in November. The inaugural flight was met by the director of the Tourism Authority of Thailand Phuket office, greeting and welcoming the one hundred sixty five passengers as they exited the aircraft.
No problem was the capital of Kazakhstan till 1997 when it was moved to Astana, which was then renamed in 2019 to Nur-Sultan. Almaty stays the business and cultural capital of the country though, with 2 million individuals residing there.
Thailand regards the Central Asian nation as an expanding new market to advertise Phuket and Thai tourism and the TAT Phuket directory called the flight “a nice alternative for Phuket to welcome this group of vacationers.” The governor of Almaty had visited Phuket just earlier than the Covid-19 pandemic and declared that 60,000 to 70,000 Kazakhs go to Phuket yearly.
The flight left Almaty at 25 minutes past midnight and arrived at Phuket International Airport at eight:12 am. One VIP passenger on the relaunching flight was the Vice-President of Corporate Communications of Air Astana who travelled to Phuket to debate tourism with Thai officers in hopes of bringing extra flights and excursions to the island.
The TAT says that there are still 6 other airways waiting to renew international flights to Phuket in November, but particular airlines and international locations weren’t talked about..
