Air Astana Group has signed a memorandum of understanding with Neos SpA ("Neos"), Italian airline to enter a strategic partnership, QazMonitor reports citing the news service of the London Stock Exchange.

The strategic partnership will encompass several areas of cooperation, including:

  • A codeshare agreement under which Air Astana will apply a marketing code to Neos-operated flights between Milan Malpensa (MXP) and Almaty (ALA) airports and vice versa.

  • Service collaboration on Boeing aircraft is agreed to start from 2025. The same year, Air Astana Group will receive delivery of three Boeing 787-900. Where permitted, the parties will share technical and operation insights gained during existing operations by Neos and entrance into service by Air Astana.

  • The parties will consider and evaluate the formation of a joint-venture for route(s) between Italy and Kazakhstan, where regulatory, anti-trust and governmental authority permits.
