Greece rests hopes on Qatar agreement

GREECE’s troubled economy could get a boost thanks to a new air transport memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Qatar.

The signing amends a March 2006 agreement, which provided for two Qatar Airways flights between Doha and Athens daily.

The MoU, signed by Qatar Civil Aviation General Authority chief Abdulaziz Mohamed al-Nuaimi and Greek Civil Aviation Authority chair Pope Vevey Dimit aims to open airspaces between the two countries for passengers and cargo flights.

Qatar, which recently bought a 35 per cent stake in Cargolux, has witnessed a recent growth in its aviation sector.
