Air France signed an agreement here today to establish services
Under the agreement, the two sides will cooperate in the fields of passenger service, goods transportation, training and maintenance, Aeroflot director Valeri Okulov told reporters.
They will also fix the flight schedules to enable Air France to extend its network in Russia and across the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) and allow Aeroflot to do the same in Europe, Africa, Latin America and Southeast Asia, where Air France
is well established, he added.
A new joint freight service on the Paris-Moscow route will be created on September 17, said Air France Managing Director Marc Veron.
Veron added that the agreement was “historic” and was part of Air France’s plan of “creation of a worldwide network.”
Air France has a fleet of 205 planes serving in 98 countries, while Aeroflot has 115 planes in 93 countries.
