Air Astana Signs MOC with JSC NC Astana Expo-2017

JSC NC Astana Expo-2017 has signed a memorandum of cooperation with Kazakhstans flag carrier - Air Astana, to become a partner in this major international exhibition and hold the exclusive status of Official Air Carrier of Expo-2017.

The MOC was signed in by JSC NC Astana Expo-2017s Chairman, Akhmetzhan Yesimov and Air Astana President, Peter Foster, OBE.

Air Astana is the largest airline in Kazakhstan, and the memorandum signed today will be the first step in our cooperation. With its international reach across Asia, Central Asia, Europe and the Middle East, the airline will be able to promote this major project around the world. We have agreed to place the Expo 2017 logo on all of Air Astana's aircraft and to develop a joint promotional plan for the exhibition, which will be enormously beneficial to building international awareness, said Akhmetzhan Yesimov.

Within the framework of the MOC , there are plans to integrate the airlines online reservation system onto the event website and also activate a joint PR-campaign. Additionally all Astana transit and arriving in passengers will be given tickets to the exhibition in 2017.

Peter Foster, said, The theme of Expo 17 will be Future Energy and the event will focus on innovative and practical energy solutions and their global impact. The airline industry is a contributor to greenhouse gas emissions, and at Air Astana we continue to take corrective action through the introduction of greener technology. At the recent Paris air show we announced our intention to acquire a fleet of Airbus A320 family NEO aircraft, whose new engine technology should save up to 15% of emissions. The NEOs will be introduced from 2016. The Expo 17 site is well underway, and we look forward to supporting what will be a fascinating and enjoyable extended event, as Astana opens its arms to the world.
