Dublin to Almaty Flights
Flights from Dublin Airport
Flights from Dublin depart from the city's main airport, which is located 10 kilometres to the north of the city centre. It has two terminals, both of which are served by a range of transport options, although there is no direct rail link. To compensate, the airport has a range of bus routes to take passengers all over Ireland. The Air Link and Airport Hopper services are dedicated airport routes that run directly into the city centre.
Alternatively, it is possible to park at Dublin Airport, which has some 14,400 spaces allocated to long-term travellers and 3,600 short-stay spaces on offer, as well as provision for disabled parking. Regular travellers who are members of the Airport Club benefit from discounts in the short-stay car parks, as well as being fast-tracked through security.
Passengers on the flights Dublin offers can enjoy a range of shops in The Loop to keep them entertained before flying. The Click & Pick Up service also enables travellers to order duty free goods online and collect them at the airport, either on the way out or on their return journey. Passengers are also offered a host of restaurants and dining options, ranging from quick sandwiches to more leisurely sit-down meals and bars, including a champagne bar. For passengers seeking a comfortable and relaxing experience, the airport also provides executive lounges that can be used for up to three hours for a small charge. The facilities include a business centre with free Wi-Fi and complimentary refreshments and newspapers.

Almaty International Airport
Almaty International Airport, the largest airport in Kazakhstan, is the most important access point into the country. The airport is located on Mailin Street, approximately eleven miles from the centre of the city. It is the hub for Air Astana, SCAT, DETA Air, and Irtysh Air. British Airways, Lufthansa, KLM, and about fifteen other airlines fly into this airport. Visas must be obtained in advance, since the Consular Station at the airport no longer offers that service upon arrival.

Airport Ground Transportation
There are two ways to catch a taxi from the airport. If you walk outside and hail a taxi yourself, the ride into the city will cost you approximately $25. If you go to the airport information booth and ask the representative to call you a taxi, it will cost about half that amount but will take an extra ten minutes or so for the taxi to arrive. Your public transit option is to take bus #32 or #79 to the city centre for approximately 80 Tenge. The bus starts running at 7 a.m.
