The first regular flight has been launched between Almaty and Tamchy in the neighbouring Kyrgyzstan, United States Agency for International Development (USAID) reports.

“Following a survey in the tourism sector, USAID facilitated launching the flight for Kazakhstan’s tourists willing to rest at Issyk Kul resorts [in the neighbouring Kyrgyzstan]”, USAID Press Service reported.

The regular flights aboard AN-24 [capable of carrying 46 passengers] will be performed twice a week throughout the high tourist season. A return ticket will cost $226, reports.

The project is supported by USAID, Muza Travel Agency of Kyrgyzstan and Compass Travel Agency of Kazakhstan.

Issyk Kul is an endorheic lake in the northern Tian Shan mountains in eastern Kyrgyzstan. It is the tenth largest lake in the world by volume and the second largest saline lake after the Caspian Sea. Although it is surrounded by snow-capped peaks, it never freezes; hence its name, which means "hot lake" in the Kyrgyz language.
