UAE, India boost aviation cooperation
NEW DELHI: The UAE and India have explored ways to take bilateral relations to a higher level with special emphasis on the aviation sector.
The two sides discussed the possibility of signing a new agreement to utilise the high potential for travel growth between the two countries.
Carriers from India and the UAE can now fly a total of 131,741 aircraft seats a week, each way.
Both parties agreed to hold a meeting in the near future to review the joint Air Service Agreement.
If the proposal goes through, the new agreement will be a stepping stone for more flights and operational flexibility and trigger a fresh round of negotiations for enhancement of bilateral ties.
