The DOTr, in a statement, said that the agreement will pave the way for the two countries’ respective carriers to “mount daily flights to and from each other’s territory, which will result in a further increase in tourism figures and people-to-people exchanges between the two countries, and boost economic and social relations.”

The two parties also signed a memorandum of understanding that will grant “full third and fourth freedom traffic rights for both passenger and cargo, and setting out other operational details for their respective designated carriers.”
