The Public Authority of Civil Aviation (PACA) inked an air transport agreement between Oman and the Czech Republic, allowing direct flights between the two countries.
As the Times of Oman reports, the agreement provides under the open skies policy, which allows the Czech Republic and the Sultanate to operate their airlines between both countries freely – with any number of flights allowed through any midpoints and points beyond the two countries.
Additionally, the respective airlines will be able to establish codeshare agreements.
The agreement, which consists of 26 articles for the regulation of technical and operational matters, was signed by Dr. Mohammed bin Nasser al- Za’abi, CEO of PACA, and Juraj Koudelka, Czech non-resident Ambassador to the Sultanate.
As it stands, there are no direct flights between the two countries. Oman is linked to over 100 countries with similar bilateral agreements and PACA is aiming to add on to this number.
