Asiana forges memorandum of understanding with Air Astana

Asiana Airlines, Korea’s second-largest major airline, said yesterday that it has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Kazakhstan’s Air Astana to reinforce cooperation between the two nations.

Asiana Airlines CEO Kim Soo-cheon and Air Astana President Peter Foster signed the MoU on Thursday in Astana, Kazakhstan.

Asiana and Air Astana both use a “block space” arrangement in a codeshare agreement, in which only a limited number of seats are offered. However, the new deal allows each airline to book any available seat on either Asiana or Air Astana - referred to as a “free sale” system.

Asiana currently operates flights twice a week between Incheon International Airport and Almaty International Airport.
