Air Kyrgyzstan seems to believe that its choice of destinations is too modest to create a route map. While Air Kyrgyzstan only flies to one Central Asian destination, Tashkent, Bishkek is well-served by the other countries' flag carriers with direct flights from Almaty, Astana, Dushanbe, and Tashkent. There is a notable absence of flights into Europe here, as Air Kyrgyzstan has no IATA certification and is banned from flying to the EU. Outside of cultural and political indications, there are obviously other factors to consider—in this case the economic divides between Central Asian nations that allow some countries the resources to better maintain their flag carrier fleet and others, like Kyrgyzstan, who have not kept up.
