Air Astana signs code-share agreement with Air India
NEW DELHI: Kazakhstan’s largest airline Air Astana has signed a free flow code-share agreement with state-run airline and Star Alliance member Air India.
“As a state-run airline and Star Alliance member carrier, Air India feels honoured to enter into this code-share agreement with Air Astana. This agreement has enabled Air India to reach out to the CIS (Commonwealth of Independent States) and eastern European market,” said Air India chairman and managing director Rohit Nandan.
A free flow code-share agreement implies pursuing joint marketing policy by two or more air companies. As a result, a customer can purchase a flight ticket from any of the parties to a code-share agreement, while the flight is conducted by only one of the cooperating airlines, the operating carrier.
