UAE signs aviation deal with Turkey

27 November 2007
The UAE has signed an accord with Turkey to allow more liberalised aviation rights between the two countries.

The UAE’s General Civil Aviation Authority signed a memorandum of understanding in Abu Dhabi with the Turkish aviation regulator.

Both parties agreed to increase traffic rights between Turkey and the capital of the UAE to five potential flights a week.

Etihad Airways, the Abu Dhabi-based carrier, does not currently fly to Turkey but is known to be looking at the country as a future destination. It has welcomed the agreement and said it will be considering adding Turkish destinations to its network.
