Barbados signs air services agreement with Government of Qatar


Article by

Barbados TodayPublished 


TBarbados concluded an air services agreement with the government of Qatar on Wednesday, in the margins of the International Civil Aviation Organisation’s (ICAO) 41st General Assembly.

Minister of Tourism and International Transport, Senator Lisa Cummins, formalised the agreement while attending the ICAO General Assembly, which took place in Montreal, Canada from September 25 to 28.

Minister Cummins revealed that as part of the efforts to deepen and strengthen Barbados’ relations with Qatar, the two countries also signed a joint Memorandum of Cooperation (MoC) in addition to the air services

agreement.

She noted that the agreements would allow Barbados and Qatar to begin discussions on commercial carriers flying to this island. It was also disclosed that Barbados was in the process of finalising and approving code-sharing arrangements for Qatar Airways, and in the coming months “dedicated engagements” would occur with the government of Qatar regarding airlift between that country and the

region.

The Minister with responsibility for the Civil Aviation Department further noted that specific to the MoC, Qatar agreed that they would support Barbados in capacity building for the creation and development of its

new aviation authority. This would include the training of Barbadian nationals and the provision of scholarships in the area of aviation.

“One of the critical elements of work at the Ministry of Tourism and International Transport is in the area of aviation and aviation development. It has been an aspiration of Barbados, for over 40 years,

to establish a civil aviation authority and we are just about to do that,” Senator Cummins stated.

She added that over the last two years, a considerable amount of work had gone into developing the aviation sector, including the drafting of an aviation strategy. In addition, she noted that for the first time in Barbados’ history a Civil Aviation Authority Bill would be laid in Parliament in the coming weeks.

While pointing out that the Bill, once passed, would establish a Civil Aviation Authority, Minister Cummins said: “It will also have with it two additional items of legislation on air navigation services and accident investigation services, and those things together will allow for Barbados to emerge into a new era of aviation development.”

The tourism minister stressed that the efforts at creating a new era in aviation development represented Barbados’ efforts to become the southern logistics hub within the Caribbean. (SFC/BGIS)

Barbados Today

Prime Minister Mia Mottley has been listed among the 100 most influential people in the 2022. TIME100, the annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world.

In the TIME article written by Director General of the World Trade Organization Okonjo-Iweala, Mottley has been described as “bold, fearless, and possessing a great intellect and wit, the Prime Minister is a brilliant politician who knows how to shake things up.”

Okonjo-Iweala highlighted Mottley’s riveting speeches at COP26 in Glasgow late last year, when she chided the world’s leaders for not working more diligently to limit the potential catastrophic impacts of climate change.

She further noted Mottley’s work as chair of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund’s Development Committee, where she reminded the world’s finance gurus that the level of a country’s per capita income may not always be the best measure of its wealth.

Okonjo-Iweala lauded Prime Minister as a Barbadian icon.

“The Prime Minister strides boldly on the world stage. She is an embodiment of our conscience, reminding us all to treat our planet, and therefore one another, with love, dignity, and care.”
