Peanuts! Low Cost Airline News, Australia – September 09, 2008

Talks led by a delegation of the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) during an official visit to the Kingdom of Cambodia, the Republic of Laos and the Union of Myanmar have resulted in the signing of Open Skies agreements.  

The visit, from 19-27 Aug-08, was headed by Dr. Ismail Al-Shatti, Adviser to the Diwan of the Prime Minister and followed up on the recent tour by H.H. the Prime Minister Sheikh Nasser Al-Muhammad Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah (may God protect him) to numerous Asian countries from 24 July-16 Aug-08.

The signing of the new agreements frees air transport between Kuwait and these countries from all operational constraints, enabling their national airlines to operate any number of flights to destinations within those countries using aircraft of any type and passenger capacity.

The new agreements for air carriers – the Kuwaiti operator to all international airports in those States in particular – are based on the principle of multiple airlines designated as authorised operators between Kuwait and those countries.

The DGCA delegation was headed by Mr. Nabil Al-Zamel, Deputy Director General for Aviation Safety and Air Transport and Mr. Abdullah Al-Rajhi, Chief of International Affairs and Air Transport Management. The signing of the Convention on the organisation of air services between Kuwait and each country was carried out in the presence of all members of the Kuwaiti delegation and included a Memorandum of Understanding covering all the agreed issues.

The new conventions are consistent with the Kuwaiti government policy to liberalise airspace with countries around the world. The move aims to boost links between Kuwait International Airport and international airports worldwide and foster closer bilateral aviation relations with friendly nations, providing increased options for travel in Kuwait’s air transport market.
