Air Astana has launched a new direct service from Almaty to Tel Aviv, Israel.

The new service will be operated twice weekly, on Thursdays and Sundays, using Air Astana’s Airbus A321LR aircraft.

With the new route, Kazakhstan and Israel aim to strengthen business, cultural and tourism links between the two countries, with Israeli citizens offered 30 days visa-free in Kazakhstan on arrival.
