In his brief remarks, Managing Director of NAMA, Captain Fola Akinkuotu, said the agreement was in line with International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) requirements to enhance operational synergy in air traffic management between both countries.
The deal provided clear guidelines and procedures for collaboration on aircraft and weather or terrain information sharing.
The collaboration will further focus better application of search and rescue equipment in the event of incidents or accidents and manpower deployment.
