Air Astana

Air Astana has released a new pre-flight safety video on the eve of Nauryz, the traditional spring holiday in Kazakhstan. The video seamlessly combines stunning images of Kazakhstan’s natural beauty and culture with important safety messages.

The new style of safety videos aims to raise awareness of Kazakhstan’s identity, natural beauty, and culture as well as draw passengers’ attention to flight safety regulations.


More than 100 people contributed to the creation of the video, including director Aisultan Seitov and Kazakh composer Emil Dosov, who composed the music.

Vice President of In-flight Services of Air Astana, Yelena Obukhova said

“The magnificent nature, culture and traditions of Kazakhstan have inspired the concept of the new Air Astana safety video. During the video, passengers will not only learn about safety rules, but also enjoy viewing the landmarks of our country and hopefully be inspired to explore the unique character of Kazakhstan in person”.


About Nauryz

Kazakhs celebrate Nauryz, a significant celebration that ushers in a new year. Beginning on March 21, which is the day of the spring opening, it is observed for several days. Large and small cities, villages, and festival hubs are all turned into yurts—traditional nomad homes during the Nauryz holiday.

The most significant meal of the day and a central Nauryz symbol, Nauryz kozhe is prepared only for this day. Nauryz kozhe is unique due to its peculiar recipe. Nauryz kozhe normally has seven ingredients, though some of them may change.
