Air Manas Air Company
Today's Air Manas was formed on the basis of previously existing airline, which was engaged in the implementation of charter flights since 2006. In 2012, 49% of the company were acquired by the Turkish company Pegasus Airlines. Since then, Air Manas has started operating regular flights on domestic and international destinations. In 2019, 49% of the company were transferred to AviaTrade, a UK company.
In the process of formation of the revived airline, Air Manas has set a goal: to adopt global best practices and experience in the aviation industry, with particular attention to the perfection of safety systems, training and staff development.
Today Air Manas - is one of the dynamically developing airlines of the Kyrgyz Republic. We have proposed and adapted to the market in our region a new business model that is widely practiced in a number of foreign countries - low-cost model. Lately it became a kind of business card of our Air Company.
The main priority of the Airline Air Manas is its commitment to international standards of quality and safety. In November 2014, our airline has become the first winner of the international certificate ISO 9001: 2008 of Quality Management Systems in the Kyrgyz Republic among local airlines, successfully passed the necessary stages of certification. ISO 9001 Certification - a multi-level process that will help our company to constantly improve the quality of work, improve internal production processes, thereby aiming for a common goal - to satisfy our customers.
On March 1, 2018 Air Manas Air Company was registered in IATA as IOSA (IATA Operational Safety Audit) certified airline. This event was an act of acknowledgment of Air Manas’s high standards in safety, which meet the strictest and most advanced requirements. For now, Air Manas is first and only IOSA-certified air company in Kyrgyzstan.
The base airport Air Manas is one of the main airports of the Kyrgyz Republic - International airport "Manas" in Bishkek. In its fleet, Air Manas uses the aircraft of type "Boeing 737-400" and "737-300". At the base airport, Air Manas has also its own certified aviation-technical base for the operational maintenance of aircrafts. Due to the ongoing professional development program, experienced crew and technical staff will ensure maximum safety on board of the aircrafts; in an effort to meet the high standards and the needs of the passengers.
Within the concept and development strategy, the airline Air Manas is guided by the motto 2 theses:
The first one- "We haven’t start aviation in Kyrgyzstan, but we will change it". In this context, we have supported the initiative of progressive circles of the civil aviation sector of our Republic, which have come together around a common goal - to improve aviation safety standards and ensure the country out of the EU blacklist.
The second one - "Flying is the right of everyone." By building a completely new business model, which is based on higher productivity and lower costs, Air Manas provides people the ability to fly at very affordable prices.
Our regular passengers have already realized that the earlier they plan their flight and flight reservation, the higher the probability that they will get tickets at the most affordable rates. Plan in advance your air travel and you will see: flying - is really everyone's right!
