The agreement sets a general legal framework allowing an unlimited number of national carriers of both countries to enjoy complete flexibility on the routes, capacity, frequency of flights and types of owned or chartered aircraft.

GCAA Director-General Saif Mohammed Al Suwaidi, said the new agreement serves the interests of both countries and supports the ambitious expansion of Emirati national carriers.

In 2009 in Sofia, the UAE and Bulgaria initialed the air services agreement following talks between their civil aviation authorities.

Al Suwaidi noted that the agreement will be sanctioned and registered with the International Civil Aviation Organisation after domestic constitutional procedures are completed.

He stressed that such agreements contribute to promoting relations with other countries and boosting the UAE's economic sectors of trade and tourism.
