Dhaka, Vienna ink Air Services Agreement
Bangladesh and Austria have inked a key pact to boost bilateral aviation business and increase air connectivity between the two countries.
Bangladesh Ambassador to Austria Muhammad Abdul Muhith and Ambassador Andreas Riecken from the Austrian Ministry of European & International Affairs signed the Air Services Agreement (ASA) on behalf of their respective countries in Vienna on Monday, reports UNB.
The ASA between Bangladesh and Austria is expected not only to boost the aviation business for the two countries, but also to increase the business-to-business and people-to-people connectivity, according to the Bangladeshi side.
The agreement will also help turn Vienna into a regional hub for Central, Eastern and Northern European countries, including Scandinavia, thanks to its unique location, for transportation of goods and passengers between Bangladesh and the region, a release said.
In particular, both the countries expect that this agreement will expedite the process of passenger and cargo flights to and from Dhaka in near future and expand business opportunities between the two countries.
