Jazeera Airways has announced its second service to Kazakhstan, flying to the city of Turkistan in the south of the country twice weekly.
Launching on 3 December 2022, flights from Kuwait depart on Monday and Saturday, while the return flights from Turkistan’s Hazrat Sultan International Airport depart the following mornings of Tuesday and Sunday.
The route aims to serve the high demand for religious and cultural tourism.
Commenting on the announcement, Jazeera Airways chief executive officer Rohit Ramachandran said: “We are very pleased to be continuing our expansion and serving a significant demand from CIS countries for travel to the Middle East, specifically for pilgrimage to Saudi Arabia, thanks to our frequent connecting flights to Madinah, Jeddah and Taif.
"Turkistan also attracts religious tourism and these flights will provide customers with convenient connections through our network.”
Turkistan is a city and the administrative centre of the Turkistan Region of Kazakhstan, near the Syr Darya river. The Hazrat Sultan International Airport (HSA) was inaugurated in 2020 and has a capacity of three million passengers annually.
