South Africa and Chad ink Bilateral Air Services Agreement

Published on : Wednesday, January 25, 2017

planeIn a bid to boost their respective aviation industries, South Africa and Chad have signed a Bilateral Air Services Agreement.


The Agreement was signed by Dipuo Peters, South African Transport Minister on behalf of South Africa and Haoua Acyl Ahmat Aghabach,Minister of Civil Aviation and National Meteorology of Chad, on behlaf of Chad.


The agreement would provide a highly restricted framework that includes one passenger and one all-cargo frequency per side as well as a single designation regime per country and with no framework for the designated airlines of both countries to enter into a code sharing arrangement, Peters explained.


Peters said it was South Africa’s position that Africa needs to consolidate its own air transport market and industry in order to remain relevant. “Therefore, the individual African members’ states need to support the regional economic communities’ initiatives,” she added.


“It is expected that Africa’s rapid population growth will continue, and that its younger population will be the working class who will fly more often. The above mentioned growth prospects indicate a wide range of opportunities available to ensure the realisation of aviation industry growth,” she said.
