Air Astana and two of Europe’s leading airlines, Air France and KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, have today deepened their cooperation by signing a codeshare agreement for flights between Astana and Paris operated by Air Astana.
Effective for flights from 11th March 2016, this three times a week service will now carry the marketing code of both KLM Royal Dutch Airlines and Air France.
This agreement enables passengers from across KLM Royal Dutch Airlines and Air France worldwide networks to be able to purchase tickets and travel seamlessly to and from the Kazakh capital.
To facilitate this closer cooperation and expected growth in transfer traffic, the airlines have also executed baggage and passenger transfer agreements; and the operations of Air Astana flights at Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport have been transferred from Terminal 1 to Terminal 2a, effective 11th March 2016 for more convenient connections of passengers to the Air France – KLM network.
