Berkut Air Boeing 757 registered UP-B5701 arrived in Athens, bringing Kazakhstan officials

The Boeing 757-200 of Berkut State Air Company registered UP-B5701 arrived today in Athens. The plane carried the Chairman of the Senate of Kazakhstan, Mr Kassym-Jomart Tokayev who is taking part at the Fall Meetings that OSCE Parliamentary Assembly organizes. These meetings are held in Athens from October 9th until 12th. Over 200 OSCE Parliamentarians from 49 countries are expected to arrive these days in Athens. The 17th OSCE Ministerial Council is also scheduled to be hosted in Athens on 1st and 2nd of December 2009.
The plane arrived under the callsign BEC003, but the strange thing is that Berkut Air is banned from flights within the EU (see EU ban list).
