The Civil Aviation Authority of Qatar has inked a Memorandum of Cooperation with the Single European Sky ATM Research (SESAR) project to attain more efficiency in the management of air traffic between Qatar, other European nations and other countries of the world.
The agreement seeks to improve collaboration in air traffic management modernization projects between Qatar and Europe in a bid to develop and harmonize global aviation standards that would be applied in early 2018.
The Chairman of the Civil Aviation Authority, Abdullah bin Nasser Turki al Subaey, and Executive Director of SESAR, Florian Guillermet, were the agreement’s signatories.
Subauey remarked that aviation sector of Qatar has substantially evolved, as seen in the air traffic services it provides and the efficient use of air space in the country.
He added that the joint pact with SESAR would help generate balance and interoperability among air traffic systems that would benefit both airlines and travellers.
Guillermet said that the pact aims to contribute towards creating a global aviation sector that not only is robust but also provides environmental solutions at more reasonable rates for airlines as well as passengers.
