Kazakhstan plans to build a new international airport

15 Dec 2015

Kazakhstan plans to build a new international airport near Almaty to accommodate tourists flying to the shores of Alakol Lake. The demand for a new airport is rising as eastern economies are growing, where Kazakhstan wants to portray itself as one of connecting economic hubs. The construction of a new international airport is a part of country’s strategic development plan.

Kazakhstan has been browsing applications for its tender on construction of a new airport from various companies. Among these applicants, Chinese “Tengri Holding”, Singapore’s Changi Airports International ltd and French Vinci Group are most likely to be in the role of investors.

In the meantime, the number of campers vacationing on the shores of Balkhash and Alakol lakes has increased to 138,000 people this year.
