A memorandum of understanding for cooperation in the field of civil aviation was signed in Tripoli yesterday at the Ministry of Transportation between the Libyan Civil Aviation Authority and the Italian Civil Aviation Authorities.
The signing of the MoU was no doubt coordinated to coincide with the day that the first direct commercial flight in ten years took place between Tripoli and Rome.
The signing took place under the auspices of the Undersecretary of the Ministry of Transportation for Air Transport Affairs, Khaled Swesi, and in the presence of the Head of the Civil Aviation Authority, Mohamed Shlebek, the Italian Ambassador to Libya, Gianluca Alberini, the Head of the Economic and Commercial Office at the Italian Embassy, Giacomo Grandiso, and the Head of the Italian Civil Aviation Authority (ENAC, Ente Nazionale per l’Aviazione Civile.), Pierluigi De Palma, and his entourage.
The Undersecretary of the Ministry of Transportation for Air Transport Affairs welcomed the Italian delegation and expressed his satisfaction with their desire to cooperate, develop and strengthen relations in the field of civil aviation and air transport.
The Ministry of Transport reported that the MoU aims to develop cooperation in the field of civil aviation and air transport and to facilitate and encourage air transport companies between the two countries to operate charter and regular flights. The two sides also agreed to sign a new air transport agreement between the two countries at a later time.
