Tanzania and Kuwait seal contract on new direct flights

Tanzania and Kuwait signed a bilateral air services agreement (BASA) which will, among other things, boost the country's tourism sector and trade and investment prospects. BASA is an agreement which two nations sign to allow direct international commercial air transport services between their territories.

Direct flights to and from Kuwait will bring in the east African nation more tourists from the Gulf state. There are also prospects of more and more people from Kuwait learning about the investment opportunities in the country once direct flights between the two countries start to operate. The agreement will also enhance cooperation in civil aviation matters between the two countries whereas experts from the country could go and learn from their Kuwaiti counterparts and vice-versa.

Kuwait and Tanzania have a long history of trade and hopefully the air service agreement will go a long way in enhance the existing ties between the two countries.
