Rwanda and Tunisia on Monday signed two milestone agreements on civil aviation, marking an important step to upgrade the rules and standards for flights between the two countries.

The pact was inked on the sidelines of African Union (AU) summit in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia by the Tunisian Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs and acting Minister of Foreign Affairs, Sabri Bachtobji and his Rwandan counterpart, Dr Vincent Biruta, the official statement said.

It said that the new agreement will set a new benchmark by including provisions not normally covered by bilateral air transport agreements, such as social or environmental matters.

Beyond traffic rights, the Tunisia-Rwanda agreement provides a single set of rules, high standards and a platform for future cooperation on a wide range of aviation issues, such as safety, security or air traffic management.
