Air Kyrgyzstan

Title

Air Kyrgyzstan

Description

Air Kyrgyzstan's slate of destinations appears to be too modest for them to produce 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 to Europe from 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, differences in economic strength divide Central Asian nations. Some countries have the resources to better maintain their flag carrier fleet and others, like Kyrgyzstan, have not kept up.
