Open Skies Agreement to be signed December 11

The Open Skies Agreement will be signed on December 11, 2017 and will apply to all airports, with the exception of the Tunis-Carthage International Airport, Minister of Transport Radhouane Ayara announced on Monday.

During his hearing by the Agriculture, Food Security, Trade and Services Committee in the framework of the review of the draft state budget for 2018 and in response to MPs’ interventions, the minister said the possible creation of a new airport by 2030 is dictated by the projections relating to the evolution of air traffic over the coming years and the low capacity of the Tunis International Airport to accommodate big aircraft and large airliners.

He added that Tunisair is developing a strategy for the next period in the light of the Open Skies Agreement.

This strategy will be discussed at the ministerial level in the near future, he pointed out.

Regarding the possibility for Remada Military Airport to accommodate civilian flights, the minister said two visits were made with officials of the Ministry of Defense and it was decided to fit out the runway for the accommodation of these flights.
