Date:

The Minister of Aviation and Aerospace Development, Festus Keyamo, announced on Tuesday the intention to reexamine the Bilateral Air Service Agreement (BASA) with Algeria. This decision was revealed during a courtesy visit by the Algerian Ambassador, Hacine Lalti, to Keyamo’s office.

Keyamo further revealed that the scheduled meetings between aeronautical engineers from both countries, initially set for December, will be moved up to November 7, 2023, to expedite the review process of the BASA agreement, as per the request.

During the meeting, the Algerian Ambassador urged for a review of the July 14th, 2022 agreement to incorporate a direct flight to Abuja. Additionally, he highlighted Algeria’s interest in collaborating with Nigeria and South Africa as potential business partners.

Meanwhile, Keyamo committed to witnessing the inaugural flight from Uganda to Nigeria, emphasising the longstanding fraternal ties between the two nations. He tressed that this direct flight would mark the initiation of a collaborative partnership and underscored the importance of open skies for facilitating free trade agreements within Africa.

Ambassador Nelson Ocheger of Uganda informed the Minister of an upcoming business forum on October 21, 2023, where entrepreneurs from Uganda will engage with their Nigerian counterparts for potential collaborations and business opportunities.
