The International Air Cargo Association (TIACA) has signed 10 Memorandum of Understandings (MoUs) aimed at supporting Kazakhstan on its path to becoming a global air cargo hub.

The MoUs are signed with companies in Kazakhstan including SCAT Airlines, the Civil Aviation Association of Kazakhstan, Aktau International Airport, Aliya Moldagulova International Airport, and Nursultan Nazarbayev International Airport.

Other agreements were signed with Sary-Arka Airport, Manshuk Mametova International Airport, Almaty International Airport, Turkistan International Airport, and Shymkent International Airport.

Steven Polmans, TIACA chair, said: “We are proud to support the growth of Kazakhstan as an air cargo hub as it is in line with our mission and vision for the industry by promoting and encouraging business through connectivity.

“We not only encourage investment in known cargo hubs but also budding cargo hubs like Kazakhstan. We look forward to working with these organisations as they grow their cargo capacity and businesses.”

The MoUs were signed during the first TIACA Event Central Asia held on June 19-21 in Astana, Kazakhstan.

Catalin Radu, general director of the Aviation Administration of Kazakhstan, said: “The opportunities that have been discussed during this event underline the importance of the role that Kazakhstan will play going forward within the global air cargo community.

“We welcome the cooperation with TIACA as we work towards building Kazakhstan as an air cargo hub.”

Glyn Hughes, director general of TIACA, said: “This first TIACA event in Central Asia showed us, as well as the attendees, the focus and drive of the air cargo industry within this region.

“We are excited to work together to support their collective vision for growth and economic prosperity, whilst ensuring the key industry priorities of safety, security and compliance are fundamentally at the centre of that growth.”
