About the airline

In 1997, in Shymkent city, a group of pilots, aircraft technicians and people dedicated to aviation, who love the sky gathered together. Their passion for flying and the desire to help the country in the creation of a reliable transport infrastructure, with the faith in success helped create Aircompany «SCAT».

The team consisted of 17 like-minded people who have preserved the base, aircraft technicians and flight crews. Having painted the aircrafts themselves, they organized the offices, developed the documents. Also they were involved in legal and economic issues. The young airline took less than a year to make its first regular flight from Almaty-Kyzylorda-Almaty in 1998 on its own plane AN-24. Cohesive and ready to go ahead, the airline’s staff of «SCAT» managed to keep the tradition of Chimkent aviation division. They had to virtually "work through" numerous administrative barriers to open new flights. Not receiving a cost-effective flight, "SCAT" again and again worked to revive the once destroyed routes, performing obligations to their passengers with the hope that sooner or later the flight routes wound be in demand.

Today the company's fleet consists of predominantly owned western aircraft, operating more than 80 domestic and international air routes, annually offering up to ten new destinations, with the passenger traffic increased on average by 40%.
