An Air Services Agreement has been signed between Guyana and the United Arab Emirates.
The agreement, signed at the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) World Aviation Forum in Canada, paves the way for operations by airlines from either country.
The accord was signed by Junior Minister of Public Infrastructure, Annette Ferguson who said with the UAE being the home of two of the world’s best airlines, Etihad and Emirates she hopes that at least one will operate into ‘Destination Guyana’.
The ICAO World Aviation Forum 2015, themed “Aviation Partnership for Sustainable Development” brings together States and financial/development community to raise the level of assistance in the civil aviation sector.
Guyana will be seeking support from ICAO for technical assistance to improve the level of compliance with ICAO Standards.
