Airport World - Joe Bates
Airport World discovers that despite Kazakhstan’s recent troubles, the future of Almaty Airport looks bright under the ownership of TAV Airports.
Almaty Airport is under new ownership after global airport operator, TAV Airports, completed its acquisition of an 85% stake in the Kazakhstan gateway earlier this year.
The deal is expected to take the gateway to the next level in terms of its facilities, growth potential and ambition to become the undisputed leading hub for Central Asia.
A record 6.4 million passengers (+13%) passed through Almaty in 2019 to cement its status as Kazakhstan’s busiest airport, the upward trajectory being helped in no small way by the growth of home-based flag carrier, Air Astana.
