Flydubai announced that it will restart flights from Dubai to Shymkent International Airport (CIT) starting February 28, with flights twice a week. With the addition of Shymkent, Flydubai will now serve three destinations in Kazakhstan, including Almaty and Astana.

Ghaith Al Ghaith, the CEO of flydubai, said that Kazakhstan has long been an important market since flydubai first launched operations in Almaty in 2014.

“In 2022, we carried almost 300,000 passengers between the UAE and Kazakhstan, an increased figure of 145 percent compared to 2019, and we look forward to strengthening trade and cultural relations with the start of flights to Shymkent,” – said Ghaith Al Ghaith.

The UAE and Kazakhstan have a strong relationship in terms of trade, with cooperation in various economic fields such as mining, agriculture, oil and gas, and construction.

Shymkent is the third largest city in Kazakhstan after Almaty and Astana and is a cultural hub, featuring vibrant bazaars, historical architecture, and natural scenery.
