Air Astana and Lufthansa have enhanced their cooperation with the signing of a codeshare agreement.
The deal is valid on the Kazakhstan carrier between Astana and Frankfurt and Lufthansa’s flights from Frankfurt to Almaty and Astana with effect from March 26.
Passengers will be able to choose from a combined total of 14 flights a week instead of the seven weekly flights between Kazakhstan and Germany by each airline.
Regardless of the operating carrier, passengers can fly a combination of Air Astana and Lufthansa services using the ticket and code of either of the two airlines.
“I’m delighted that the longstanding co-operative relationship between Air Astana and Lufthansa is being further strengthened with the signing of the codeshare agreement. Passengers flying from Almaty and Astana to Frankfurt can now enjoy a greater choice of flights to best suit their schedules and the convenience of simply using the ticket of either of the two airlines,” said Peter Foster, president and CEO Air Astana.
