Africa: Togo and Kuwait’s national airlines to exercise unlimited traffic rights between both countries
Togo has signed a bilateral air transport agreement with the national airline of Kuwait which grants unlimited traffic rights between both countries.
The document was initialed on October 2 by Dokissime Gnama Latta and Yousef Al-Fozan, both MDs of the National Civil Aviation Agencies of Togo and Kuwait, respectively.
Since it commissioned its new terminal at Gnassingbé Eyadéma International Airport, Togo became an air hub and attracted new airlines on this facility, including Ethipoian Airlines, Asky Airlines, Air France and Brussels Airlines. In addition, in connection with his involvement in the emergence of an air transport sector on the African continent, the Togolese Head of State was designated by his peers as the “champion” of the single air transport market in Africa.
Mr. Latta was honored with ASECNA’s highest distinction in this domain, the “Aerodrome Medal” during the 138th session of the Board of Directors of this institution.
On the Kuwaiti side, the signing of this agreement marks an important step in the authorities’ efforts to broaden cooperation with the African continent. Until this agreement, Kuwait airline only served Egypt.
