Tunisia and Oman have signed a new agreement on air services between their respective territories and beyond.

The signing ceremony took place on Friday and was co-chaired by Tunisia’s Minister of Equipment and Housing, who is also managing the Transport Ministry, Sarra Zaâfrani Zenzri, and Oman’s ambassador to Tunisia, Abdullah Al-Sanani.

This new agreement replaces the one signed on November 16, 1985, updating it to reflect current legislative and regulatory changes and international standards in the air transport sector, particularly concerning aviation safety and civil aviation security.

Minister Zaâfrani emphasized the need for enhanced coordination to implement the agreement effectively.

She highlighted the importance of developing joint programs to share expertise and experiences in civil aviation and airport sectors, as well as forging partnerships between service providers and air carriers from both countries.

Naif bin Ali al Abri, Chairman of the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) of Oman, underscored the significance of this agreement.

He noted its role in recognizing the importance of air transport in strengthening and sustaining socio-economic relations between Tunisia and Oman.

The signing ceremony, held at the Transport Ministry’s headquarters, was attended by ministry officials, the Chairman of the Civil Aviation Authority of Oman, the CEOs of Tunisair and the Civil Aviation and Airports Authority (OACA), along with other executives from both nations.
