“Air Astana Airline is forced to suspend flights to Delhi from Nur-Sultan and Almaty from April 11 to April 30 due to the closure of the airspace between Pakistan and India,” the air carrier said.
The Civil Aviation Committee noted that they continue to monitor the situation, and as soon as the airspace is open for flights, the airline resumes the route familiar to tourists.
“Passengers who return to Kazakhstan from April 11 to April 30, 2019, the airline rebooks tickets for flights of interline partners, or they can return the tickets without fines, by contacting the booking center or at the place of purchase,” the KGA reported.
The reason for the closure of air traffic for all international flights in the Civil Aviation Committee of Kazakhstan called the escalation of the security situation in the region, where the confrontation between the military of Pakistan and India continues because of the situation in the disputed Kashmir region.
