Amman, Jordan and China on Monday penned the final version of the air transportation service agreement, inked preliminarily in 1992.
The accord, signed by Captain Haitham Misto, President and CEO of Royal Jordanian Airlines and Beijing’s Ambassador to Amman,Ban Wei Fang, aims to regulate air services mutually and entitle air transport companies in the two countries to operate 21 passenger and cargo flights per week instead of 7.
The agreement also gave operators the right to launch multi-purpose air flights from other countries’ airports, and will help shun tax duplicity and levies on air revenues in the two countries.
During the signing ceremony, Misto said this step will foster joint air cooperation and urged the Asian nation to increase its tourists to the Kingdom.
Fang, for his part, underlined the agreement will play a key role in regulating reciprocally-operated air flights and noted bilateral ties have noticeably developed in economic, cultural and touristic domains.
The deal, he added, will lay a solid foundation to the future prospects of mutual cooperation.
