H.E. Minister of Transport of Qatar, Jassim bin Saif bin Ahmed Al Sulaiti and H.E. Minister of Works and Transport of Trinidad and Tobago, Rohan Sinanan signed an air services agreement on Thursday, enhancing cargo flight operations between the two nations.

The agreement grants designated airlines from both countries “unlimited and unrestricted traffic rights” for cargo flights, a significant step towards strengthening international air cargo services. This pact is part of Qatar’s broader strategy to expand its air services agreements, aiming to open new airspaces for its national carrier and increase global connectivity.

“This agreement opens up significant opportunities for cargo transport between Qatar and Trinidad and Tobago,” stated Al Sulaiti. The expanded rights are expected to boost cargo traffic and provide more flexibility and efficiency in logistics operations.

The ministers also discussed bilateral relations in transportation and civil aviation, focusing on enhancing air transport activities and port operations. The meeting was attended by Mohammed Faleh Alhajri, in charge of managing Qatar Civil Aviation Authority, and several Ministry of Transport officials, along with Minister Sinanan’s delegation.

The agreement is poised to facilitate better cargo handling and distribution, contributing to the economic growth and connectivity of both nations.
