JSC Starline KZ, styled as StarLine.kz (Russian: Старлайн.кз), was an airline based in Aktobe, Kazakhstan, which offered scheduled passenger flights from its bases at Aktobe Airport and Astana International Airport to destinations within Kazakhstan, Turkey and the United Arab Emirates, using a fleet of two Boeing 737-200 aircraft.[1]

History[edit]

A Starline Boeing 737-300 approaches Dubai International Airport in 2008.

Starline was established late 2005, though flight operations were only launched in May 2007.[citation needed] On 1 April 2009, the airline had its airline license revoked, shortly before all Kazakh airlines but Air Astana were banned from entering EU airspace due to the poor maintenance standards in the country.[2]
