SCAT Airlines, legally PLL SCAT Air Company, is an airline with its head office on the property of Shymkent Airport in Shymkent, Kazakhstan. It operates services to all of the major cities of Kazakhstan and to neighbouring countries. Its main base is Shymkent Airport, with focus cities at Aktau Airport, Nursultan Nazarbayev International Airport and Almaty International Airport.
In August 2015 the airline announced the signing of a commitment for 15 Sukhoi Superjet 100 aircraft with the first expected to be delivered in May 2016. However, this provisional order had not been firmed up by its 1 August 2016 deadline, apparently due to issues around the leasing terms.
In November 2017, the airline signed a firm contract for the purchase of six aircraft of the latest generation Boeing 737 MAX 8 with the American corporation Boeing. On 29 March 2018 the company's fleet replenished the first in the post-Soviet countries Boeing 737 MAX 8 (with CFM International LEAP-1B engines). This is the first of the six purchased Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft.
In 2018, European airspace restrictions were lifted for SCAT Airlines and in May 2018 Vilnius became their first scheduled EU destination. In March 2018, SCAT Airlines was accepted as a full member of the International Air Transport Association (IATA). SCAT Airlines became the second Kazakhstan airline included in the IATA register.
