AEROTRANSCARGO has been given a grand welcoming befitting Royalty here in Astana’s state of the art NQZ International Airport on its inaugural flight
Upon ER-JAI’s Landing at NQZ, the aircraft was honored with the prestigious water-gun salute followed by a grand welcoming for the flight crew by the Airport Staff.
AEROTRANSCARGO has chosen NQZ as its technical stop for flights between China and Europe (and vice versa). This is the second airport in Kazakhstan Aerotranscargo has chosen for Technical Flights. The first being KGF. This shows the commitment Aerotranscargo has with Kazakhstan and how the people of Kazakhstan are changing the nation into a post-Soviet modern economy.
There are expected to be more than 10 flights per week to NQZ with a possibility of extension depending on the requirements.
The NQZ Airport Authority said its ideal geographical location reduces airline costs and offers competitive prices for ground handling and jet fuel for transit flights. In addition, NQZ noted it has the best infrastructure and special technical equipment in Central Asia.
Mr. Gabit Tazhimuratov, Chairman of the Board of NQZ, said: “We are pleased to launch the AEROTRANSCARGO transit flight. During the borders closure period, many airlines started using NQZ as a transit stop on their way from Europe to Asia and back.
“Therefore, in the long term, we have decided to review our strategy and to focus on multimodal cargo and transit traffic. The airport’s plans include the development of cargo infrastructure, the expansion of cargo terminals and the construction of railway lines. ”
AEROTRANSCARGO is committed to helping the world dealing with the unseen disaster which has plagued our world. Our timely situational response to the Virus has saved thousands of lives and is continuing to do so.
