3 September 2009
Air Astana was proud to win the award for Best e-Commerce Website in Kazakhstan at the annual Awards.kz 2008, which was held on 19 Nov 2008. Last year Air Astana won three awards in the same event: The Best Corporate Website; Discovery of the Year and 3rd place for the Kazakh language website.
This year Gerry Mitchell, Director IT & e-Commerce, Rustem Karymov, e-Commerce Manager and other members of the e-Commerce team participated in this ceremony.
Gerry Mitchell in his speech mentioned that “This award is important as it recognizes the efforts that Air Astana has achieved to provide world-class online services for its customers. This year we intentionally focused our efforts on improving levels of customer service and ease-of-use, in the sphere of online sales and ticketing. The award shows the serious potential of the e-Commerce in Kazakhstan”.
Air Astana is proud of its online achievements, considering that the new Air Astana website was only launched in June 2007. Mr. Mitchell promised that “there were a lot more interesting developments in the pipeline and that we would be back again next year”.
