MANAMA: Lebanon has become the first country to enter a full open skies agreement with Bahrain.
A mutual agreement gives the national carriers Gulf Air and Middle East Airlines the right to operate unlimited flights between the two countries and from airports within them to any other countries.
The deal also allows the airlines to fly an unlimited number of passengers and to operate an unlimited number of cargo flights, says Bahrain's Civil Aviation Affairs (CAA).
The agreement was signed in Beirut between CAA Under-Secretary Abdul Rahman Al Gaoud and Lebanese Civil Aviation director-general Dr Hamdi Shouq.
The deal may open the doors for Bahrain to sign similar agreements with other Arab countries, said the CAA.
