KYRGYZSTAN AIRLINES review :  14 April 2009 : by S Bryant  (UK)


Trip Rating :  7/10

Score 7 out of 10



Value for Money:


Cabin Flown:


Return journey from Bishkek to Osh. This has to be one of the world's most spectacular flights over the mountains between Kyrgyzstan's two main cities. The flight experience was OK with an old Antonov turboprop on the outward leg and a Tu134 on the return. Both were on time and with clean aircraft, although certainly not the newest. The airport check-in at Osh was a bit relaxed in procedure and chaotic, but did the job for the small number of passengers. I'd fly with them again on this route.

I have flown several times between Dubai and Bishkek on both KGA and their now defunct predecessor Altyn Air, Kyrgyzstan Airways have in fact just rebranded the same two planes that service the route still retaining the very attractive livery of Altyn Air, even the FA's are the same so effectively just a name change. In my opinion the service continues to slowly improve and the staff are as ever friendly and helpful. My last trip was business class and the DXB/FRU leg was on an immaculately presented TU-154M. Terminal 2 at Dubai International leaves a lot to be desired but is actually easier to use than Terminal 1 despite the lack of airbridges and arrogant customs staff. Lining up in duty free behind my pilots to be dressed as Biggles and clutching bottles of vodka I probably could have done without! The flight was on schedule, the food is OK although the most accurate description of the meal I could get in English was 'Some kind of meat' - I ate it anyway and it was pretty tasty as mysterious meat dishes go. Return flight was on the older and smaller TU-134A3, the interior of this little beasty reminds me of my Grandmothers loungeroom, but what it lacks in modern style it makes up for with a solid reliable feel and homely atmosphere. All in all not an unpleasant experience, the aircraft may be getting on but I wouldn't hesitate to fly with these guys again - watching the ground staff and pilots milling around this beautiful old 154M at Manas airport you can just tell that they love this plane, it's altogether possibly the shiniest thing in all of Kyrgyzstan! Unfortunately I believe this aircraft (85718) was damaged last week during an altercation with an incorrectly parked USAF KC135 Tanker whilst taking off - sincerely hope they can repair it.
