Basic information on airlines of the Turkish World

Three Central Asian Airline try to participate at the India/Pak - UK traffic: HY from DEL/KHI via TAS to LHR and MAN: professional but with uncomfortable transit; KC from DEL to BHX via GUW and T5 to BHX and LHR via ASB with new, beautiful bobbies B737. T5 has only very few local passengers.
They also have their connections from the Emirates : Uzbekistan HY , Imair IK , Kyrgyzstan K2 and Air Astana KC in Sharjah, Azerbaijan J2 in Dubai and Turkenistan T5 in Abu Dhabi .
Tashkent is a regional hub in Central Asia, Ufa in the Volga-Ural Region. Istanbul Airport has most flights into the Turkish World. Bashkortostan and Tatarstan do not use western equipment. It is strange that oil-rich Kazakstans two airlines [KAZ Air and Air Kazakstan] went bankrupt and could not fly to many airports. Also oil-rich Azerbaijan's Airline does not look very much for a hub role in the region. AZAL relies on oil traffic to Europe and offers a lot of flights to Turkey and Russia.
"Il-86 planes will not be in use starting November 15, 2006 and it is too costly to keep them through the winter and fly just two or three months in the summer," Aeroflot's Deputy Director General Igor Desyatnichenko told reporters. Other airlines in the region are still far from replacing their fuel-spoiling fleet.
If you already have your visa, most lines will lead through Frankfurt. Getting a visa in Istanbul is easy and some cities can be better reached via Istanbul. The main airport there is Atatürk Airport International Istanbul. Many reasons speak for chosing Istanbul to fly to Central Asia and the Caucasus region.
Istanbul's second airport is Sabiha Gökcen airport. Due to its cheaper prices and its spare capacity it fits operation from the Balkans, Caucasus, Central Asia and Eastern Europe.
Germany's main hubs are Frankfurt and Munich airport. Vienna offers a lot of flights to Eastern Europe but on busy days transit in Vienna is not very convenient. Flights have often delays. Beware of very short connections.

Transit at a Gulf airport is also convenient if it does not add flying hours. Transit times can be very long.

Hints for journeys with CIS airlines - how to feel safer

Always close all doors in your aircraft very smoothly!
Check your airlines reputation in the web before you buy a ticket.
Check out their english level and international experience, esp. that of their pilots. When sitting or standing up, don't touch the seat in front of you. A human being is sitting there.
Do not fly on holidays : Vodka may be widespread in the plane, even in the cockpit.
Do not have too much baggage : Even hand baggage is included in your free baggage allowance. Any excessing kilo will be charged by 1 % of your one way ticket price. If you fly from/to the USA, only two pieces of luggages are allowed, each max. 35 lbs. Local airlines are much more restrictive than international.
There is a new regulation since 06.11.06 in Europe on liquids in your hand luggage. Effectively it prevents you from bringing alcohol not bought at the airport duty free with you. Restriction of civic rights sucks!
Do not trust their de-icers too much! Prefer warmer days.
If there might be fog know if the airport you fly to has a ICAO CAT II or III landing system, most CIS airports don't.
Listen to possible emergency presentations, pay attention to the flightcrew safety demonstration/video, carefully read the safety briefing card. Know where the nearest emergency exit is and know how to open it in case of emergency (refer to the safety briefing card). Ask if you have a question.
Prefer aile seats and be cautious when baggage is put in the aile or at emergency exits. Watch that all head racks are closed.
Prefer airlines that renew their fleets. In Russia, unfortunately due to the tax code only a few are able to.
Prefer flights that are shown in major Computer Reservation System as these airlines seems to be able to afford that service.
Prefer scheduled airlines rather than charter airlines: That is what the statistics say (maintenance reason)
Always keep your seatbelt fastened when in your seat (Clear Air Turbulence can be unexpected and can cause serious injuries)
State Department Travel Information: Travelers on airlines among the countries of the Caucasus may experience prolonged delays and sudden cancellations of flights. In addition to routine delays, flights are often overcrowded with passengers without seats standing in the aisle, along with excess unsecured cabin luggage. Even basic safety features such as seat belts are sometimes missing.

  • Kristine's comments 15.01.1999
    After previous experiences, we were amazed at our good fortune in terms of both the service on the flights and the lack of feeling as if our lives were in danger on flights! A few things for people travelling... Arrive early - and use the scales around the airport to make sure that you have less than 20 kilograms (or whatever your wait limit). If you have just a few kilos more, a few tricks... 1. put a few heavy things in one of the "pakets" or Russian plastic bags, and cover it with mittens or crackers. Then when you go to check in, lean the bag on the floor against the counter where you're checking in. They rarely, if ever, will force you to put this on the scale, and you can always argue it is "your purse." Russians do this often. 2. Wear a student size backpack th same color as your coat. Black works in particularly well. Even if it is stuffed absolutely full, they rarely pay enough attention to know that you're wearing it as you put your other things on the scale to weight. 3. Pack in many smaller bags instead of the typical large suitcases Americans use. There is not limit on the number of bags, only on the amount of weight. If registration is in a different place than the flight hall, a friend can hold another bag of overweight and no one will usually check the "cabin luggage" tags that they put on to make sure everything was weighed. Also, with smaller bags they fit underneath seats or on top and you won't have to check luggage in. Not having to check anything in saves lots of TIME and HASSLE. 4. If you're travelling as a group, give everyone one of the small pakets with stuff, and try to put all the other bags on the scale together. Usually if you're speaking a foreign language they'll finally give up, register you,and send you through without making you put absolutely everything on the scale (not enough room for all those little things in addition to the other bags...) Most of the airports require you to go on a bus to get to the flight, and do not allow you to walk straight from the terminal into a warm plane. Often, the buses are NOT heated, and the plane may not have been heated prior to your entrance. Keep plenty of winter clothes on you (they also don't weight what you're wearing:) - a friend put six bottles of alcohol into her coat pockets and underneath her sweater. Security thought only that she wanted plenty for the flight...) The idea is to be the last one onto the, and the FIRST one off of th bus. The first one off is especially important if you have lots of small bags and need to find a place for them. Most flights give you a seat number, however, unless the flight is very full you can choose any seat you want. Our experience with buying tickets was pleasant, but took a long time. The one bright spot was St. Petersburg - if anyone is traveling through there, I would highly advise foreigners to buy all of their tickets in that one city! It goes much more quickly, and there are many fewer hassles with looking at documents, determining tariffs, etc. Also, we were able to use credit cards in St. Petersburg, but had to pay cash (rubles) in all other cities. Overall, flying in Russia is much cheaper for foreigners now. In most cases, the cost of a coupe on the train was of similar cost to flying for us. Hope this helps, Kristine

  • New motorway in Central Asia. During a meeting of the Presidents of Kazakstan and Kyrgyzstan earlier this year, the parties discussed a number of interesting plans. They exchanged opinions on the construction of a 80 km motorway linking Almaty and Cholpon-Ata at Lake Issyk-Kul. Recently a bilateral agreement was signed. So the designing of the motorway is to begin this year and construction next year. Trade between the two countries increased 50% last year.

Today 4,500 vehicles use the highway daily. This number is expected to record a sixfold increase after the completion of the highway. Car parks and service stations are to be installed on the highway reaching international standards then. Eurasian File 9.96

    Turkmenistan is to require citizens of most CIS states to obtain a visa before visiting that country, Interfax reported on 17 March. Turkmenistan is the first country to announce it is withdrawing from the CIS Free Travel Agreement. A "source" told Interfax that one reason for the decision is that "mass migration and other travel are becoming increasingly uncontrollable." Another reason, according to the same source, is that Turkmenistan has become a haven for those wanted for crimes elsewhere in the CIS. Citizens from Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan are exempt from the new requirement, which is expected to go into effect beginning 9 June. RFE/RL 17.03.99
