The Sultanate of Oman, represented by the Civil Aviation Authority, inked an air services agreement with the Republic of Tunisia in Tunis on Sunday, Muscat Daily reported.

The agreement was signed by Eng Nayef bin Ali al Abri, Chairman of Oman’s Civil Aviation Authority, in the presence of Sarah Zaafarani Zanzri, Tunisia’s Minister of Transport, Dr Hilal bin Abdullah al Sanani, Oman’s Ambassador to Tunisia, and several officials from the two countries’ civil aviation authorities.

This agreement updates the 1985 agreement between the governments of Oman and Tunisia concerning air services, taking into account current regional and global advances in aviation.

It establishes the principles of open skies between the two nations, allowing airlines to operate an unlimited number of direct flights. The agreement aims to streamline operational and technical aspects for the mutual benefit and regulation of air transport services between Oman and Tunisia, the same source added.

The agreement covers provisions defining the program of air links between Oman and Tunisia. These provisions cover economic conditions, regulatory frameworks and operational cooperation. They allow designated airlines from both countries to operate passenger and cargo flights between their respective airports. In addition, airlines from Oman and Tunisia can enter into code-sharing agreements, enabling them to jointly use flight codes on routes operated by carriers from both countries.

In addition, Oman has bilateral air transport agreements with 124 countries worldwide. These agreements are designed to comprehensively regulate air transport services, encompassing both technical and operational aspects, while fostering strong civil aviation and air transport relations with partner countries.
