Existence of ballistic transport for Schr ̈odinger operator with a quasi-
periodic potential in dimension two is discussed. Considerations are based on the
following properties of the operator: the spectrum of the operator contains a semiaxis
of absolutely continuous spectrum and there are generalized eigenfunctions being close
to plane waves ei⟨⃗k,⃗x⟩ (as |⃗k| → ∞) at every point of this semiaxis. The isoenergetic
curves in the space of momenta ⃗k corresponding to these eigenfunctions have a form
of slightly distorted circles with holes (Cantor type structure).
