New flight in Sept: "Sanya Celebration" promo in Almaty bears fruit
A new weekly flight that will go between Almaty (Kazakhstan) and Sanya will be launched by the end of this September, according to an agreement reached by the Sanya Tourism Development Commission in cooperation with the Hainan Hongxiang Travel Agency and the tour operator Kompas. The agreement was reached at the “Sanya Celebration” tourism promotional event held at the Rixos Almaty Hotel in Almaty, Kazakhstan’s largest city, on August 7th, 2017.
More than 120 attendees attended the event, including Fan Mu, Director of the Sanya Tourism Development Commission; Rysty Karabayeva, President of the Kazakhstan Eurasian Tourism Association; the Sanya travel operator delegation; and representatives from tourism enterprises and travel operators in Almaty.
The event included a presentation on Sanya’s strong portfolio of tourism products and high quality services. The presentation emphasized that these products meet global standards. Presenters sought to paint the city as an open, international tourism destination, highlighting the safety of its travel and vacation environment. During the event, Mr. Fan, on behalf of all tourism professionals in Sanya, extended an invitation to guests to engage in increased tourism cooperation and cultural exchange.
More than ten Kazakhstan media outlets reported on the event.
Statistics show that during the first half of this year, Sanya received 15,000 visitors from Kazakhstan, a year-on-year increase of 583.14 percent.
At present, there is an Almaty-Sanya-Almaty direct air route operated by CKAT Airlines that runs every Saturday. When the newly announced flight is launched, there will be two flights weekly between Almaty and Sanya.
