Kazakhstan’s Air Astana resuming flights to Amsterdam

Kazakhstan’s Air Astana is resuming flights between Kazakh Atyrau and Amsterdam, Trend reports citing the company.

The flights will be resumed starting June 3, 2021 after they were suspended at the beginning of the year due to the restrictions introduced by the government of the Netherlands. The flights will be carried out once a week on Thursdays.

On Oct.19, 2020, Kazakhstan’s government decided to take several measures to battle the spread of coronavirus infection in the country.

Thus, the number of flights on international routes will be reduced starting Oct. 26, 2020, taking into account the epidemiological situation in foreign countries. Mandatory PCR testing of all arriving in Kazakhstan (including citizens of Kazakhstan), as well as drivers carrying out bilateral international transportation, will be conducted.

The validity period of the carried out PCR test for those arriving from abroad, including citizens of Kazakhstan, should be no more than 3 days.

The first two cases of coronavirus infection were detected in Kazakhstan among those who arrived in Almaty city from Germany on March 13, 2020.
