Air service agreement between Luxembourg and Kazakhstan, 20th of November, 2012

On the 20th of November, 2012, the Minister for Sustainable Development and Infrastructure of Luxembourg, Claude Wiseler and the Deputy Minister of Transport and Communication of the Republic of Kazakhstan, Azat Bekturov, signed a Memorandum of Understanding to further develop the air service activities between both countries.
The Memorandum of Understanding allows the airline companies of both countries to operate up to seven passenger or cargo flights per week between Luxembourg and Kazakhstan. Today, the Luxembourg cargo company “Cargolux Airlines” operates two flights per week to Kazakhstan.
The agreement also foresees transit landings, which, taking into account the geographical situation of Kazakhstan may be of a beneficial advantage for the cargo flights between Luxembourg and Asia.
The cooperation in civil aviation will also be intensified and representatives of the Kazakh aeronautic authorities may participate in the programs and seminars organized by the Luxembourg Aviation Safety Agency (ALSA).
