According to information provided to Lusa by Inavic / ANAC (National Civil Aviation Authority / National Civil Aviation Authority), 47 bilateral aviation agreements have been registered, 31 of which have been signed by states and initiated by 16 aeronautical authorities.
The most recent agreement was signed by Dubai Transport Minister Ricardo Aubrey, which will allow Etihad and DAAG to establish air links between the two capitals, the flag companies in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Angola, Abu Dhabi and Luanda.
Inavik also initiated correspondence to negotiate bilateral agreements with other “aeronautical authorities”: Italy, Argentina, Kuwait, Seychelles, Mauritius, United Kingdom and Cuba.
Angolan officials say they are also considering projects from Ethiopia and Ghana in the same direction.
As Ricardo Aubrey told reporters at the time, the approach in the civil aviation sector goes beyond passenger and cargo aviation: “We address the issue of institutional and regulatory issues, but also the issue of infrastructure and air navigation and traffic control,” as part of an agreement signed with the United Arab Emirates on Wednesday.
