Zhezkazgan Airport

Located 12km away from the city center of Zhezkazgan, Kazakhstan, Zhezkazgan Airport makes it easy for tourists to reach the city. It is classified as an international airport even though it functions mainly on domestic travel. Those looking for this port of entry on the map will find it on 47.708302 (latitude) and 67.733299 (longitude). The point of elevation is 1250 feet above sea level with a runway extending 8,530 feet long. This allows Zhezkazgan Airport to welcome up to medium-sized airplanes only. Bigger planes might also be accommodated, but these instances are rare due to the size of the landing area.

The airport's basic facilities have an air traffic control tower to signal planes when they can land or take off. Flashing beacon lights are also put up to illuminate the way for planes as they arrive on the airport. This allows them to meet the safety standards in the aviation industry.

Travelers alighting from the planes will find themselves experiencing a continental semi-arid climate. It can be hot and dry (sometimes extremely hot) during the summer and then cold during winter. Rain is mild and does not usually pour down heavily. The average temperature can go up to 24 °C in July to -16 °C in January, which can make the climate cool enough to wear heavy clothing especially in the later months. The land, however, is general Kazakh upland and is far away from a big river.

These go between Zhezkazgan to Astana International Airport, Almaty International Airport, Sary-Arka Airport, and Balkhash Airport.
