Saint Lucia negotiates and signs new bilateral air services agreement

Saint Lucia has signed an Air Services Agreement (ASA) with the United Arab Emirates (UAE). 

The ASA is one of the fundamental facets of modern international commercial air travel. Hence the many airlines from the Middle East region that may want to service Saint Lucia, whether directly or indirectly, now have the framework to do so. 

The signing took place during the International Air Services Negotiation Event (ICAN2019) which took place during the period December 2-6, 2019 in Aqaba, the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan. 

Both Saint Lucia and the UAE were satisfied that the Agreement benefited from rigorous scrutiny and was in line with international standard and respective local requirements.
