Comoros set to offer foreign carriers cabotage rights

Posted 18 July 2017 · Add Comment

The government of the Comoros is planning to open up the Indian Ocean archipelago's domestic market to foreign operators, reports ch-aviation.

The deputy chairman of the Comorian Cabinet in charge of the Ministry of Transport said the relevant measures needed to grant 7/8/9th Freedom rights to operators such as Air Tanzania were already in the pipeline.

Once implemented, the move will greatly alleviate inter-island bottlenecks that have worsened since the Comorian civil aviation authority (Agence Nationale de l'Aviation Civile et de la Météorologie de l'Union des Comores - ANACM) grounded AB Aviation earlier this year citing KMF224 million Comorian francs (USD480,000) in unpaid government taxes and debts.
