The new Atyrau–Frankfurt route will be operated under a codeshare agreement with Lufthansa, marking an extension of the cooperation between Air Astana and the German flag carrier.

“We are delighted to announce the launch of our new Atyrau–Frankfurt service, which we believe will bring greater travel convenience to our valued corporate customers operating in the region. The city of Atyrau, where the boundaries of Europe and Asia meet at the Ural Bridge, is especially important for the hydro-carbon sector,” commented Richard Ledger, VP Marketing and Sales, Air Astana. “We’re also very excited to expand our codeshare agreement with Lufthansa, which will enable passengers to connect across the Lufthansa global flight network.”
