Liberia seeks Aviation Cooperation with Qatar

Liberia’s quest to become the once favorable aviation hub in the sub-region, which had most of the international connecting flights, is picking up slowly with ongoing negotiations with aviation giants.

Riyadh, Saudi Arabia – May 21, 2024 – Mr. Julius D. Dennis, Jr., Director-General of the Liberia Civil Aviation Authority (LCAA), met with Qatari aviation officials during the 3rd Future Aviation Forum (FAF 2024) in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

The invitation to the forum, held under the patronage of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud, and the General Authority of Civil Aviation (GACA), provided an opportunity for Mr. Dennis to engage with Mr. Mohammed Faleh Alhajri, Acting President of Civil Aviation of the State of Qatar, and Ms. Aisha Ali Al-Nuaimi, Acting Director of International Cooperation for Civil Aviation of Qatar.

Discussions focused on establishing stronger aviation ties between Liberia and Qatar.  Key areas of interest include:

1. Signing a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to facilitate aviation safety, security, and training collaboration.

2. ⁠Negotiating a Bilateral Air Services Agreement (BASA) to establish a legal framework for Qatari airlines to operate scheduled flights.

“This meeting represents a significant step forward in fostering closer aviation cooperation with Qatar,” said Mr. Dennis. “An MOU and BASA would mutually benefit our countries, promoting trade, tourism, and economic growth.”

The LCAA anticipates receiving a formal invitation from Qatari aviation authorities to continue these discussions Doha, Qatar. This would allow for a more detailed exploration of potential cooperation opportunities.
