Mauritius-Swaziland: Signature of Bilateral Air Services Agreement

Cooperation 24 Apr 2017

A Bilateral Air Services Agreement (BASA) was signed between Mauritius and the Kingdom of Swaziland on 19 April 2017.

The Agreement provides for multiple designation of airlines by each country and seven weekly frequencies to be operated by the designated airlines of each Party. 
It is expected that the new air services agreement will give a boost to passenger traffic between the two countries and will be beneficial for cross border collaboration, as well as enhance Swaziland investment opportunities in Mauritius. 

Both countries may operate all cargo services between and beyond the territory of the Contracting Parties without any capacity and frequency restrictions with full third, fourth and fifth freedom traffic rights.

The signatories for the Mauritian side was the Solicitor-General, Mr. D. K. Dabee, and for the Swazi side the Director General of Swaziland Civil Aviation Authority, Mr. Solomon Dube.
