GCAA signs ASA with North Korea

GCAA signs ASA with North Korea

The UAE General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) has signed an air service agreement (ASA) with North Korea to provide cheaper transportation means for North Korean overseas workers, the Korea Times has reported, citing informed sources. Although the agreement does not limit the number of flights, it is unlikely that major airlines of the two countries will operate regular flights as soon as the deal goes into effect, considering that few North Koreans are allowed to travel outside their communist homeland, a Dubai-based airline company official was quoted as saying, asking for anonymity. Saif Al Suwaidi, the director general of the GCAA, confirmed the signing over the phone, but declined to comment further, the report said.
