KINGSTON, Jamaica — Cabinet has given approval for the signing of new air-service agreements with the Governments of Slovenia, the Kingdom of Morocco, The Bahamas, and South Africa.

Minister of Education, Youth and Information, Senator Ruel Reid, made the announcement during today's post-Cabinet press briefing at Jamaica House.

Reid said Cabinet took special note of the outcome of the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) Air Services Agreement, which, since 2008, had provided states with an avenue to conduct air-services negotiations or consultations.

“This is important in negotiating direct flights to Jamaica. Cabinet noted that Jamaica had participated in 16 air-service agreement negotiation sessions since 2008,” he said.
