At the meeting, the parties discussed the issues of code-share cooperation, destination points on the territory of the two states, flight security and others. 

We note that at the present time the two states have direct regular air communication on the route Almaty - Bangkok with a frequency of 5 flights a week (+2 flights a week in winer) and Astana - Bangkok with a frequency of 3 flights a week by Air Astana. 

Thus, following the talks, Kazakhstan's airline Air Astana received the right to sign code-share agreements with airlines of third states. New rights will result in many opportunities for Kazakhstan's passengers and will facilitate in further development of the transit potential of the country.
