Astana International Airport, one of the major airports in Kazakhstan, is located in the capital city. Two other airports are located in Almaty: the Almaty Burundai Airport and the Almaty International Airport.

Astana International Airport (AIA) was built in 1931 with Astana's first airfield. In 2005, the airport was rebuilt to meet international standards. The following year, on the city's 10th anniversary, AIA handled about 834,299 passengers. Astana City also launched its own carrier, Airbus A-320. Outside the airport, visitors always marvel at the mosaic tiles in honor of Islam and the national flag.

Almaty International Airport, on the other hand, is at a strategic location, linking South-Eastern Asia and Europe. Almaty International Airport, situated 10 km north of the city, has a high tech runway that meets global standards. There are local buses that take passengers to the city and back. Trolleybuses leave the facility every 10 minutes. There is talk of further upgrade since Kazakhstan's tourism is growing incredibly fast.

Kazakhstan is the world's biggest landlocked country. It is bordered by Russia, Uzbekistan, China and Kyrgyzstan and Turkmenistan with part of the land located west of the Ural Mountains. It has also become one of the 10 leading producers of crude oil in the world. Kazakhstan was once part of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics but gained independence from the Union after the fall of the Iron Curtain in 1991.

There are 14 provinces in the country: Akmola, Aktobe, Almaty, Almaty Province, Astana, Atyrau, Baikorur, East Kazakhstan, Karagandy, Kostanay, Kyzylorda, Mangystau, North Kazakhstan, Pavlodar, South Kazakhstan, West Kazakhstan, and Zhambyl.
