Officials of the General Directorate of Civil Aeronautics (DGAC) of Peru will travel to Qatar in February 2019 to try to seal a bilateral agreement on air services, which will allow direct flights between both destinations in regards to the 2022 FIFA Soccer World Cup.
Every December 18 it is celebrated the National Day of Qatar and for that reason, the Peruvian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Néstor Popolizio, decided to make this announcement at this time.
“Today the fastest route between Lima and Doha (Qatar) takes 22 hours with a stopover in Sao Paulo, and the final leg of the flight takes place on a plane from Qatar Airways, the official airline of Qatar 2022”, Gestión explained today.
Accompanied by the ambassador of the State of Qatar in Lima, Ali Hamad Al-Sulaiti, minister Popolizio mentioned that the two countries are also negotiating an agreement for the promotion and protection of investments and an agreement to avoid double taxation or imposition.
“Peru wants to deepen the commercial and economic issue with Qatar, an area where we are absolutely complementary because Qatar imports 95% of the products it consumes,” noted the chancellor.
This past October, the emir of Qatar, Tanim bin Al Thani, made an official visit to Peru where four agreements were signed in the hopes of deepening the countries’ relationship.
