India and New Zealand will co-operate on training and technical activities in the civil aviation sector.

“The type of co-operative activities will include civil aviation programmes such as sending and receiving experts or instructors for training purposes, the acceptance of licences, the acceptance of aeronautical products including but not limited to aircraft, engines, propellers and parts, and aviation services,” says the government of India.

The pair will also organise seminars and exchange information on activities, policies, practices, laws and regulations.

A joint committee will be formed to determine and supervise the areas of co-operation.

Ajit Singh, union minister of civil aviation, says the designated airlines of both sides are entitled to a daily service in each direction, but that the carriers of both countries are not using these services.

Innovata Schedules show that there are no direct flights between India and New Zealand.
