Opening of Transit Lounge
Now the staying of transit passengers in the terminal will be more comfortable. On December 5, 2013 a new waiting room of transit passengers was opened in the passenger terminal building of Almaty International Airport JSC.
The transit lounge was reconstructed applying the latest technologies intended for transit lounges. There are light boxes which simplify the passing, and transfer passengers do not need to leave the terminal and pass all check-in procedures, passport and customs control for the second time. There is a check-in counter for such passengers in front of the entrance to the transit zone.

Also it is planned to make in the international departure lounge an additional exit to the bus which will take passengers to aircraft located at remote parking stands.
