Air Astana has marked 16 years of successful operation in the Russian market.  The airline inaugurated services to Russia in 2002, with the first flights from Astana and Almaty to Moscow. Between 2009 and 2012, additional services were launched from Astana to Ekaterinburg, Novosibirsk, Omsk and St. Petersburg, as well as from Almaty to Kazan and St. Petersburg. Earlier this month, two new services commenced from Astana to Tyumen and Kazan, which brought the total number Russian cities being served from Kazakhstan to seven.
