This Thursday, the country made its accession to the Single Air Transport Market in Africa official, by delivering to the African Union (AU) the Letter of Accession to the Solemn Declaration to the Single Air Transport Market in Africa. With this membership, the gains can be numerous, including the opening of new routes, more frequent flights, better connections, as well as lower prices.

The delivery of the letter – signed on September 29 last year by the President of the Republic, João Lourenço, in accordance with the terms of the Constitution of the Republic – was made by the Angolan ambassador to Ethiopia and Permanent Representative to the AU and UNECA, Miguel César Bembe, in an event that took place at the entity's headquarters, in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

According to the ambassador, by depositing the aforementioned letter of accession, the country became the 37th Member State to complete this process, writes Angop.

It should be remembered that last year, the Solemn Declaration for the Single Air Transport Market in Africa passed the scrutiny of the National Assembly. Thus, the ambassador said that the deputies identified the various gains that this membership will bring to its members.

Among the gains highlighted are, for example, the opening of new routes, more frequent flights, better connections, as well as lower prices, which will allow us to boost the movement of goods in the region and also promote the movement of people. Miguel César Bembe also said that with this accession, the number of passengers should grow, as well as bringing positive results for commerce, travel for both work and leisure, job creation and improvement in the Gross Domestic Product.

"Angola considers leadership, political commitment, equitable and inclusive participation, citizen empowerment and the revitalization of strategic planning as absolutely essential factors in shaping Africa's future and ensuring the success of the African continent's ambitious goals," said the diplomat, cited by Angop, having also reiterated the country's commitment to continuing the legacy of the founders of the AU, implementing initiatives that contribute to strengthening the ownership of Africa's destiny, as well as strengthening its position and competitiveness in general matters.

The relevance of implementing the decision to create a single air transport market on the continent was highlighted by Amani Abou-Zeid, AU Commissioner for Infrastructure and Energy, writes Angop.
