Bases For Air Astana Pilot Jobs (including restrictions for recent pilot school graduates)
last update
At the moment only ASTANA for all fleets. Even Boing flights are all transferred from ALA to ASTANA and the future main expansion will be only in Astana as well according the governmental request despite Almaty would probably have much more to offer as a touristic stop-over. In the winter Astana is a very cold and windy city with up to -40 degree. But has some interesting buildings and not so much pollution than ALA. Long waiting list for ALA base.
