MOSCOW, March 27 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia and Sri Lanka have signed a new air services agreement. The right of flights and landings on the territories of Russia and Sri Lanka is given to authorized air companies that will make flights to Colombo and to Moscow, says a report of the Russian Ministry of Transport. Other destinations must be arranged for additionally.
In order to make chartered and extra flights, as well as flights not on the timetable, the authorized air companies and other companies must make a request to the authorities of the opposite side no later than 120 hours before the intended flight.
The agreed upon air routes used by the authorized air carriers must meet public needs in transportation on the fixed routes. The facilities provided must suit the needs in transportation between the countries of departure and landing, the needs in transportation of a district over which the air route passes, as well as the needs in transit carriages. The timetable of flights on the agreed upon routes is endorsed by the aviation authorities of Russia and Sri Lanka.
The new air services agreement replaces the agreement the USSR and Ceylon signed on February 22, 1964.
