Looking for a new and memorable destination for your next event? Almaty, Kazakhstan’s largest city, offers a sophisticated infrastructure for meetings, a buzzing nightlife scene and lots of excursion opportunities from skiing to hiking in the surrounding Trans-Ili Alatau Mountains.

Air Astana is delighted to announce new direct flights between London Heathrow - Almaty and London Heathrow – Aktau. The new flights operate twice weekly on Thursdays and Saturdays, using Airbus A321NEO Long Range (LR) aircraft. Evening departures from London Heathrow arrive in Aktau and Almaty the following morning, providing seamless connectivity to Nur-Sultan, the capital, and other points on the domestic and regional network.

Almaty is a connected regional hub for delegates from Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, Georgia, Azerbaijan and Turkey and now easily accessible from the UK on direct flights on a 4* Skytrax award-winning airline. Market leading interiors include flat-bed business class seats.

Visa-free for UK nationals for visits up to 30 days, it is just 30 minutes from the airport to Almaty city centre. A thriving fin-tech city, Almaty is powered by smart phones; so making bookings, payments and ordering taxis is efficient, secure and in English.

Almaty offers a wide range of experienced hotels from city centre business properties to high end luxury brands. The entertainment scene offers great value with excellent restaurants and sophisticated nightspots.

There are plenty of options for post meeting excursions including trips in and around the city. The ski resort of Shymbulak is 30 minutes away, the Big Almaty Lake, surrounded by mountains and coniferous woods, an hour away, and Charyn Canyon, part of the Charyn National Park, just two hours.

Almaty is a year-round modern city; with exhilarating winter sports and awe-inspiring summer adventures.
