Seychelles has expanded its air transport service after signing two new air services agreements with Zimbabwe and the Dominican Republic.
The signing was done during the twelfth edition Air Services Negotiation Conference (ICAN) hosted by the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) held in Jordan early this month.
“Zimbabwe and the Dominican Republic are two countries with whom we enjoy excellent bilateral ties and we believe that the signature would elevate our relationship with these two countries to new heights,” said Ambassador Jean – Claude Adrienn.
Mr Adrienn states that the agreement is expected to profit the people of Seychelles whose economy largely depends on trade and tourism.
“The signature of these agreements attest to Seychelles’ commitment to increase the number of regulatory frameworks that would allow the country to boost connectivity with the rest of the world,” said Adrienne.
The event, which is the largest Air Services negotiation platform, was officially opened by the Minister of Transport of Jordan, Khalid Walid Saif. It had 61 countries in attendance alongside seven international organizations.
Following the annual meeting, Seychelles now has a total of 91 Air Services frameworks.
