India approves draft of aviation agreement with Mozambique

21 July 2016

The Indian government has approved the draft of an aviation agreement to be signed with Mozambique, “a decision that will promote air links between the two countries,” according to a statement released Wednesday after a Cabinet meeting.

The statement, issued in New Delhi, added that the final text of the air agreement proposal was approved after consultations with the Ministries of Finance, Foreign Affairs and Law and Justice.

India and Mozambique, which have no air agreement, started negotiations in 2011 to sign the document, which stipulates that airlines from each country can fly and open offices in the other.

The air agreement also stipulates routes and airports that each of the approved companies can use, and also includes provisions on safety and business opportunities, among others. (macauhub/MZ)
