Kazakhstan authorities are considering the option of extending the "Open Skies" regime over Astana after EXPO

23 May

The "Open Skies" regime over Astana may be extended after the world specialized exhibition EXPO 2017. This was stated by Roman Sklyar, the Vice Minister for Investments and Development of Kazakhstan, the "TASS" news agency reported.

"During the international exhibition, the “Open Skies” was introduced for Astana - all foreign carriers are entitled to fly to Astana up to seven flights a week. The opening of flights depends on the intention and commercial readiness of foreign companies," Sklyar said.

Specially for the exhibition will be launched new flights, linking Astana with Finland, Poland, Hungary and China. For the reception of EXPO 2017 visitors in the capital an additional airport passenger terminal will be put into operation.

“If the "Open Skies” regime yields positive results, then it is possible to extend it even after the exhibition," the Vice Minister said.

Let us remind that the plans for the introduction of the "Open Skies" regime over Astana in May became known at the end of March. As foreign experts note, the actions of authorities of Kazakhstan are an extraordinary step, as they traditionally adhere to the policy of regulating international air transportation in favour of domestic airlines and on a parity basis.
