21 May 2013

Mozambique and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) last week in Dubai signed a two-way air transport service agreement, which is intended to be the beginning of a new era for the relationship between the two countries, according to Mozambican daily newspaper Notícias.

This agreement is the culmination of over seven years of negotiations and consultations, the last round of which was held on 14 and 15 May in Dubai, at which Mozambique was present with a delegation led by the chairman of the Civil Aviation Institute, Captain João Abreu.

This agreement is the first that Mozambique has signed with a confederation that brings together several countries and airlines.

The EUA include seven states and under the terms of the agreement it has designated five airlines including Emirates Airlines, Etihad Airways and Rakairways, and Mozambique is due soon to name the airline to be included in the agreement. (macauhub)
