Air Arabia's flight offer to Kazakhstan also hopes to assist in the development of Astana and Almaty, the country's capital and cultural centre, respectively, into burgeoning tourism and trade locations.

Leading a delegation of senior officials, media, guests and passengers on the inaugural flight, Air Arabia's chairman and CEO Shaikh Abdullah bin Mohammed Al Thani said the airline is "committed to offering affordable travel to more people across the region and are very excited to extend our reach into this extraordinary region".

Part of the historic Silk Road, Kazakhstan offers large expanse of great scenic beauty and many rare animal and flower species. The travel opportunities are boundless, ranging from hiking across picturesque mountains and camping beside vast lakes to historic city tours.

Air Arabia will fly thrice a week to Kazakhstan via the Sharjah International Airport. It will fly to Astana every Monday and to Almaty every Wednesday and Saturday.
