Ethiopia and Rwanda sign open skies agreement


The African Union Commission (AUC) Chairperson, Dr. Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma, has congratulated Ethiopia and Rwanda on the recently reached open skies agreement.
The open-skies agreement would allow the national airlines of both countries to operate freely, with no limitations in the airspace of the other.
The airspace agreement, reached last week under the Fifth Freedom Rights Act and signed between the Ethiopian Civil Aviation Authority and the Rwanda Civil Aviation Authority, allows aircrafts from either country to carry passengers to the other, and to a third country with no limits or tariffs.
The initiative is likely to boost operations for both countries and thus yielding major gains on revenue.
“This a critical step towards the full implementation of the Yamoussoukro Declaration, geared toward improved regional and economic integration. I congratulate Ethiopia and Rwanda for taking the leadership”, Dr. Dlamini Zuma opined, hoping many other champions will follow. African Union Commission
