UAE GCAA hosts liberalisation of air transport between Arab states meeting

UAE General Civil Aviation Authority last week hosted (19-Sep-2010) the second meeting of the working group formed by the Arab Ministers of Transport to review the provisions and the by-laws of the agreement for the liberalisation of air transport between Arab countries known as the Damascus Agreement. The meeting made a number of recommendations urging the Arab states that did not ratify the agreement to do so as soon as possible and those who ratified the agreement to implement it. The meeting also recommended holding a conference on the Damascus Agreement for heads of civil aviation authorities in Arab states to discuss and agree on a road map for the implementation of the agreement.
