Kazakhstan's national airline Air Astana is looking to expand in Asia.
Jointly owned by the government of Kazkhstan and the UK's BAE Systems, the carrier is already offering flights to Hong Kong.
In December it will open a route to Vietnam, where it says business and tourism markets are taking off.
Juliana Liu spoke to Air Astana's president, Peter Foster.
