Ghana and the Bahamas have signed an initial Bilateral Air Services Agreement (BASA) and a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to strengthen the cooperation and understanding between the two countries.
According to the Deputy Minister of Aviation, Kwabena Okyere Darko-Mensah, who signed this agreement on behalf of the Ghana government, this initial BASA and MOU "will enable flight services between the two countries".
The initial Bilateral Air Services Agreement (BASA) and a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) which was signed at the eleventh (11th) International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) Air Services Negotiations event (ICAN2018) hosted by the Kenya Civil Aviation Authority (KCAA), ongoing in Nairobi-Kenya, allows negotiations between States and Regional Groups.
ICAN2018 (10th - 14th December, 2018)
ICAN2018 provides States with a central meeting place to conduct multiple bilateral (regional or plurilateral) air services negotiations or consultations.
It offers a forum for the participants to learn about current trends, discuss and exchange experiences, as well as providing excellent networking opportunities.
Negotiations between States/Regional Groups stay private.
ICAN has been highly commended by participating Delegations as an efficient platform for conducting air service negotiations. Since its inception, the number of countries that utilizes this facility has steadily increased. So far more than a total of 142 States have participated in and benefited from ICAN at least once.
