Download PDF for this date

A four-man Israeli delegation arrived in Bangkok yesterday to sign a civil Aviation agreement with Thailand providing for reciprocal landing rights in each country. The delegation is headed by Ephraim Zussman, director of civil aviation at the Transport Ministry. The agreement, which was concluded in principle some time ago, provides El Al with a link in its projected Far Eastern route which it hopes to extend to the Philippines, Japan and eventually Australia.
