Kathmandu, September 29
Nepal has signed a revised air service agreement with the United Arab Emirates at ICAO Global Aviation Security Symposium 2019 in Canada. The agreement was signed by Minister for Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation Yogesh Bhattarai and UAE’s Finance Minister, Sultan Bin Saeed Al Mansoori.
The two countries had agreed in principle to sign a new deal earlier this year. Tourism Ministry’s joint-secretary Suresh Archarya says that the new agreement would make it easier for Nepal to fly its aircraft to the UAE and would also be getting better services around airports in the UAE and vice versa.
Acharya further adds that the agreement has a provision which would give both the countries rebate on customs and other taxes.
