India and New Zealand has signed a bilateral air services agreement that would facilitate the operation of direct flights between two countries. The deal was signed in the presence of the President Pranab Mukherjee, who was on a three-day state visit to New Zealand and the New Zealand Prime Minister John Key.
Now as per the agreement, New Zealand airlines can operate flights to seven select Indian cities while Indian airlines can fly to any point in New Zealand along with intermediate points in Australia, Singapore, Bangkok and Hong Kong. The agreement was signed under the Convention of International Civil Aviation opened for signature at Chicago on 7 December 1944. The agreement will lead to easier connectivity between the two nations.
So now let’s discuss some questions related to this post :
1. For which service, India and New Zealand has signed an agreement recently ?
2. Who is the PM of New Zealand ?
