How to Get There

By Air

Almaty International Airport is located 15km (9.5 miles) northeast of the city. The airport is small, be early, and expect delays. Lots of departures from Almaty end up leaving a bit late, but most arrivals are timely. A taxi from the airport to the city should cost about 18 - 20 EUR (3700 KZT), but prices vary and can cost more if you do not agree the price in advance.

Several airlines have regular flights into Almaty, including the low-cost carrier air Baltic from Riga, Lufthansa, CSA, Etihad Airways, KLM, bmi, Aerosvit, Air Arabia, China Southern and Turkish Airlines. Approximately a 7-8 hour flight from Europe. Air Astana, has direct flights from major European cities such as London, Frankfurt and Amsterdam.




Visas must be obtained in advance of arrival, as they are no longer available on arrival at the airport, (unless you are arriving from a country that has no consulate, and that type of plane-side visa usually needs to be coordinated with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs at least one week in advance). When leaving by air, you need to fill out a customs declaration form. The forms are available in several languages including English and German. Check-in desks open around 3 hours before flight departure and you are not permitted into the check-in area until the desks for your flight have opened.
