(27 May 2021) Air Astana has confirmed that it will resume direct flights between Atyrau in western Kazakhstan and Amsterdam on 3 June 2021.
The airline suspended its regular service due to COVID19-related restrictions introduced by the Dutch authorities earlier this year.
Air Astana will operate the route with one flight per week on Thursdays, using Airbus A321 aircraft.
The departure time from Atyrau (GUW) is scheduled for 05:40 with arrival in Amsterdam (AMS) at 07:50.
The return flight from Amsterdam (AMS) is timed to leave at 11:50 and arrive back in Atyrau (GUW) at 19:40.
The outbound flight time is 5h10m and 4h 50m on the return to Atyrau.
This service between Atyrau and Amsterdam supplements the existing flight on Wednesdays between Atyrau to Frankfurt. Passengers on these routes can connect with Air Astana partner airlines across Europe and North America.
With so many constantly changing COVID19-related regulations, travellers should familiarize themselves in advance with the entry, transit and departure requirements of any destination they plan to visit or stop in.
