Dhaka, Vienna sign air services agreement

Bangladesh and Austria signed an air services agreement on Monday for extending aviation services and business between the two countries.

Bangladesh ambassador to Austria Muhammad Abdul Muhith and ambassador Andreas Riecken from the Austrian Ministry of European and International Affairs signed the agreement on behalf of their respective countries.

The agreement will help to expedite the operations of passenger and cargo flights to and from Dhaka and expand business opportunities between the two countries, the Bangladesh embassy in Vienna said in a press release.

It will help turn Vienna, due to its unique location, into a regional hub for Central, Eastern and Northern European countries including Scandinavia for transportation of goods and passengers between Bangladesh and the region, the embassy said.  

Bangladesh deputy chief of mission Rahat Bin Zaman was also present in the signing ceremony.
