Air Arabia, the first and largest low-cost carrier (LCC) in the Middle East and North Africa, today signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the UAE National Emergency Crisis and Disasters Management Authority (NCEMA), the federal organisation responsible for coordinating the national response to emergencies and crises.
Under the terms of the MoU, Air Arabia will provide the NCEMA with all support needed in implementing its strategies and plans. The two organisations will also establish a joint working group to develop procedures that support efforts taken by the NCEMA.
The signing ceremony was attended by Sheikh Abdullah Bin Mohammad Al Thani, Chairman of Air Arabia, and Mohamed Khalfan Matar Al Romaithi, Director General, NCEMA, in addition to members from both organisations.
During the signing of the MoU, both Sheikh Al Thani and Al Romaithi stressed the importance of this partnership and the support that Air Arabia will provide to the vital work of the NCEMA in achieving its objective.
The NCEMA is the major national standard-setting body responsible for regulating and coordinating all emergency and crisis management efforts, as well as the development of a national plan for responding to emergencies. Its work is focused mainly in the development, consolidation and maintenance of laws, policies and procedures of emergency and crisis management at the national level.
