Itinerary

The itinerary that follows is to be considered as preliminary.

We have two versions of this tour; in the longer version we will first pay a visit to Almaty were we will do a ramp-tour. This is mainly for people with an interest in civil aviation, but Almaty is home to military units as well so there might be a chance at capturing these as well.

In the long version of the trip we will fly to Kazakhstan on Monday 21 May 2018 and return to the Netherlands on Sunday 27 May 2018.

In the short version we will depart on Tuesday 22 May 2018 and will return on Sunday 27 May 2018 as well.

In the long version we will arrive on Tuesday morning 22 May 2018 (very early) at Almaty where we will have a ramp visit that same day. That same night we will travel to Astana where we will go to our hotel. The schedule will be the same after that for both versions.

We will visit KADEX on the trade-days (Wednesday 23 and Thursday 24 May) and the public days (Friday 25 May and Saturday 26 May). On Sunday 27 May we will start our journey homebound.
