Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has approved his country’s signing of a new Air Services Agreement with Guyana.

The announcement was made in a statement issued by India’s public relations bureau. The Air Services Agreement will come into force following the exchange of diplomatic notes between the countries after confirmation that they have completed the required internal procedures.

“The signing of Air Services Agreement with Guyana will enable a framework for the provision of air services between the two countries,” the statement read.

An Air Services Agreement is a bilateral agreement that allows international commercial air transport services between signatories.

The new Air Services Agreement between Guyana and India is expected to create an enabling environment for improved connectivity and provide commercial opportunities to airlines of both countries.

Guyanese Vice-President Bharrat Jagdeo and Senior Finance Minister Dr Ashni Singh are currently on an official visit to India, where several discussions will take place, as the two countries continue to forge closer ties in a number of areas.

The bilateral Air Services Agreement has its basis under the Chicago Convention and associated multilateral treaties. The Chicago Convention was signed in December 1944 and has governed international air services since then. Guyana and India are signatories to the convention.
