The UAE and Iran has agreed to amend a technical operation agreement in the field of air navigation, in effect since 1986, whereby some air routes have been revoked and replaced by single operation routes. The amendment, which was signed by the General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) on behalf of the UAE, is meant to cope with the growing air traffic and upgrade aviation safety levels in both regions, according to Director General of the GCAA Mohammed Ghanim Al Ghaith. It will save aviation companies operating on these routes an amount of over Dh 15 million a year and will come into force as from next November. (The Emirates News Agency, WAM)

Dr Mohammed Al Attar, Director-General of ICBA, signed the agreement during his recent visit to Bangladesh.
