Canada announced the expansion of Canada’s air transport agreement with Algeria. The number of weekly flights from Algeria to Canada will rise from two to three during the winter season, and from two to four during the summer season.
On December 20 and 21, 2010, Canada announced that open skies-type air transport agreements have been concluded with both Jamaica, and Trinidad and Tobago, and an expanded air transport agreement was reached with Egypt.
The new agreements give airlines additional flexibility for route selection, frequency of service and price setting. Airports will also be in a position to better market their services.
Since the launch of the Blue Sky policy in November 2006, the Government of Canada has negotiated air transport agreements with more than 50 countries. For more information, please visit the Bilateral Air Negotiations Between Canada and Foreign Countries Web page.
