Indian government concludes aviation agreements with Austria, Romania and Uzbekistan.


The Indian government has concluded bilateral aviation agreements with Austria, Romania and Uzbekistan.

Commencing summer 2000, under the agreement with Austria, designated carriers, including Austrian Airlines and Air India, will be able to operate up to four frequencies per week with Airbus 310 aircraft, an increase of one flight per week from the current level of three. The two carriers also have an option effective 12 February 2000 that will allow Air India 27 Y-class and three J-class seats on each Austrian Airlines flight free of charge. Also commencing on this date, the Austrian carrier will operate three weekly services with an Airbus 330 aircraft.

Uzbek Airways meanwhile has been given the right to utilise the unused entitlements of Indian carriers under a code-share arrangement and designated airlines from Uzbekistan will be able to use up to 850 seats per week of the unutilised Indian entitlement for the Uzbekistan-Delhi route, while Indian carriers can now fly to Samarkand and Bukharh in Uzbekistan.

Finally, Romania and India have agreed to a reduction in the royalty payable to Air India by Romania`s Tarom airline from USD50 to USD36 per passenger.
