SCAT Airlines relaunch service between Astana and Tomsk

During a press service from the embassy of Kazakhstan in Russia, it was announced that Kazakh airline SCAT will start flying a service between Astana and Tomsk, Russia. SCAT Airlines used to fly this route a number of years ago, however, the service was suspended throughout 2016 and 2017.

 

SCAT Airlines will fly between Astana International Airport (TSE) and Bogashevo Airport (TOF) two times a week — once on a Monday and once on a Tuesday. SCAT will use the CRJ200 aircraft to operate the flight and is expected to take 1 hour and 45 minutes.

 

SCAT Airlines have launched this service in an attempt to make travel between Kazakhstan and Russia more convenient for students, tourists and businessmen alike.

New service between Astana and Vilnius available with SCAT Airlines

Kazakhstan's SCAT Airlines have announced a new flight that will connect the capital of the country, Astana, to the capital of Lithuania, Vilnius. 

 

The new flight will start operations on 27th May and will fly between Astana International Airport (TSE) and Vilnius International Airport (VNO). The flight will run twice a week, carrying passengers on the Boeing 737-300 aircraft. The service is expected to have a flight time of 4 hours and 20 minutes. 

 

Vice President of SCAT Airlines, Nikolay Buryakov, stated that the airline hopes that a direct flight connecting Kazakhstan and Lithuania will allow business travellers to use their time more efficiently, as this non-stop flight will reduce the time they spend travelling.

SCAT Airlines paves the way for Kazakh airline fleet growth

October 2018 may mark Kazakhstan as the first country with aircraft from all three families of new generation single aisle re-engined aircraft. Air Astana became one of the first A320neo operators in 2016, and later this year will become one of the first Embraer E190-E2 operators. Kazakhstan’s second largest airline, SCAT, took delivery of its first 737 MAX 8 at the end of Mar-2018.  For all three new aircraft types to be operating in Kazakhstan represents a major transformation, given that the market has historically been dominated by ageing aircraft and Russian models. Kazakhstan became independent in 1991, but for years its airlines continued to operate Soviet era aircraft.

 

Change began with Air Astana, which has only ever operated Western aircraft in its 16-year history and took its first new aircraft nearly 10 years ago. SCAT has been on the scene for 2 decades but only phased out its last Russian aircraft in 2016, and the 737 MAX 8 marks the first time the airline has ever taken delivery of a new Western aircraft.

SCAT Airlines receives IOSA security certificate

SCAT Airlines has become a member of the International Air Transport Association (IATA), the company’s press service announced March 24.

The association represents the interests of the air transport industry in such areas as flight safety, flight operations, tariff policy, maintenance, aviation security and the development of international standards in conjunction with the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO).

“Safety is the number one priority for IATA. The main safety management tool is the IATA Operational Safety Audit programme (IOSA). The IOSA was introduced in a number of countries, including Kazakhstan, as a state safety requirement,” reads the report.

To date, two airlines operating in Kazakhstan have confirmed the IOSA, including SCAT Airlines.

“Two years ago, the company passed an audit in which more than 1,000 elements of operational activity were examined according to international standards. Thus, the company was awarded the IOSA security certificate. On this basis, the airline is able to fly to Europe,” IATA representative Jordan Karamalakov said.

He noted the availability of this certificate opens wide prospects for the airline. According to him, another air carrier holding the IOSA certificate in Kazakhstan is Air Astana.

“From now on, the airline has great prospects in the field of cooperation with other carriers on a global scale, for example, in signing agreements on the exchange of passengers. This will raise the reputation of the airline. Now, 92 percent of passengers in Kazakhstan will fly by airline flights that have an IOSA security certificate. This is an achievement of Kazakhstan in the field of civil aviation,” he noted.

SCAT Airlines adds first fuel-efficient Boeing 737 MAX in its fleet

Kazakhstan-based, SCAT Airlines recently received its first Boeing 737 MAX 8, which is one of the six that it had ordered in 2017. It is the first airline in Central Asia to fly the MAX.

SCAT has been operating the fuel-efficient Boeing’s Next-Gen 737, since long. With the delivery of the new 737 MAX, the airline will be able to achieve a double-digit improvement in fuel efficiency, and environmental performance.

“Last year, SCAT Airlines celebrated its 20th anniversary, and it’s quite symbolic that we are entering a year of adulthood, with a purchase of the newest aircraft models. We are confident that the acquisition of Boeing 737 MAX 8 jets will not only raise the level of customer service in our airline, but will offer a new momentum in the development of the aviation industry in Kazakhstan,” said Vladimir Denisov, president, SCAT Airlines.

During the 2017 Dubai Airshow, SCAT Airlines had placed orders for six 737 MAX 8s, worth $674 million. It included purchase rights for five additional 737 MAX 8s.

“Today marks yet another significant milestone in our long-term partnership with SCAT Airlines. We are proud to have supported their growth, and we look forward to the 737 MAX, to take the airline to new heights,” said Marty Bentrott, vice president – sales, Middle East, Russia & Central Asia, Boeing Commercial Airplanes.

The 737 MAX family is designed to offer exceptional performance, with lower operating costs and additional range to open up new destinations in the single-aisle market. The 737 MAX has incorporated the latest CFM International LEAP-1B engines, advanced technology winglets, Boeing Sky Interior, large flight deck display, and other features to deliver the highest efficiency, reliability and passenger comfort in the single-aisle market.

Kazakhstan’s SCAT, Air Astana revise Boeing delivery dates

The delivery schedule has been revised for Kazakh operator SCAT Airlines’ Boeing 737 MAX 8 narrowbodies and for the Boeing 787-8 Dreamliners intended for Kazakhstan’s national carrier Air Astana.

The new timeline was officially announced during Kazakh President visit of Nursultan Nazarbayev’s visit to Washington, D.C., the U.S. Department of State reports.

SCAT, which signed up for six 737 MAX 8s with an option for five more at last year’s Dubai Airshow, will now receive the first of the batch in March 2018. The airline confirmed the firm status of the order for Russian Aviation Insider. It is estimated at $674 million in catalog prices.

Air Astana has once again revised the delivery dates for its three 787s. The airliners are now to be received in 2021. The carrier’s original plan to take delivery of the first aircraft in 2017 was subsequently scrapped, reportedly due to an economic downturn on the national market.

SCAT operates 18 aircraft, including including Boeing 767-300s, 757-200s, 737-700NGs, 737-300s, 737-500s, and Bombardier CRJ200s.

Air Astana’s 31-ship fleet is comprised of Boeing 767s, Boeing 757s, Airbus A319s, A320s, A320neos, A321s, and Embraer E190s.
