Kairat travelling experience
FC Kairat press-office gives you a little insight on how the team travelled to away games this season.
In 2016 Kairat played 21 away games. Each away game is a serious challenge for administration staff. Before players and coaching staff get on board, a lot of tasks has to be done. One of those tasks – logistic or a destination route.
This year the team travelled to destinations by bus or plane. However, the team only used the bus when travelling to Taldykorgan or Kokshetau from Astana and was coming back from Taraz. In Europa League Kairat used the bus quite often, when played against Teuta and Maccabi Tel Aviv the team was based in Tirana and Tel Aviv but played their games in Durres and Netania.
This season Kairat travelled 2128 km by bus, taking into account only away games.
Plane was more frequently used type of transport this season. The most important destination for Kairat was Astana, where the team travelled 5 times. This year the team has been once in Taraz, Uralsk, Kostanay and Karagandy.
Trips to Israel and Albania were the hardest ones this season. Kairat departed to Tel Aviv from Almaty via Tbilisi, and to Tirana via Moscow. Kairat travelled 10 000 km for those two trips. Overall the team spent 58 968 km in the air this season.
