Flights to Almaty

Fly direct to Almaty from the UK and discover one of Central Asia’s most dynamic cities. The drab Soviet days are a distant memory.

The tree-lined streets of today’s oil-rich Almaty are home to shopping malls and international fashion labels, museums, cocktail bars and cosmopolitan restaurants. But this is not just a destination for shopaholics and culture vultures. If you like adventure, the snow-capped mountains which surround the city lure skiers, hikers and wildlife spotters. Here in the extreme south-east of Kazakhstan the memories of the great Silk Road trade between China and Europe are as strong as ever.
