SCAT Astana-Antalya-Astana

01.02.2013 . AI-Russia
On the whole the flight was OK. Ive got something to compare with earlier I used to fly with SCAT (local flights), Air Astana, BEK Air, Etihad, Transaero, Russia, Coral Blue, Aerosvit and Lufthansa.




Nowadays SCAT airlines undoubtedly take the second position on the Kazakhstan air market. The fleet is being increased by the most safe and comfortable aircrafts. Much attention is paid to the service level - here are comfortable seats, high quality food, polite personnel, etc.
I flew with SCAT in the June of 2012 (29.06.2012). The seasonal flight from Astana to Antalya was made on board of Boeing-757 with hull No LY-FLG. Departure was from Astana airport Terminal 1, with arrival to Antalya airport Terminal 1.

Astana Airport

The former terminal now is used only for the Heads of States and the first persons of the country.

Astana Airport

The international airport in Astana was constructed under the plan of the architect Kisho Kurokawa experienced in the airports construction beginning from Kuala-Lumpur and ending with Astana.

The new airport is up-to-date, tiny, technically supported, designed in pleasant green.

Astana Airport

Its comfortable and pleasant inside the building.

To be continued about the food (fish, chicken, mutton and sausages were served). I chosed sausages.



Tea or coffee alongside with various beverages is served during the flight. I appreciated the work of the cabin crew all of them look tidy and are very attentive to the passengers.



The toilets are standard and clean, whats rather important.



The plane descended lower the cloud level and the view of the hills, the Mediterranean Sea and Antalya itself reviled.




Yet in the sky I had an opportunity to enjoy the view of my future accommodation.



Slow descending, a jolt, and we were driving along the runway of the Turkish airport. Someone even began to applaud! A bit later the plane got in the flaps and gradually began to slow down. Ten minutes later weve stopped and parked by the terminal. After the full stop of the engines we were allowed to leave the plane.

In the airport:
Having passed through the passport checkpoint weve entered a Duty Free zone. There was a number of small shops in it, just like in Astana. There were the branded clothing stores (Bvlgari, Style Studio, etc.), incredible souvenirs, wonderful cafés, medical service, restaurants, bars, bank services, mother-and-child room, play area. It was very beautiful.

There was free Wi-Fi.
