Federal Transport Minister David Collenette and Foreign Affairs Minister John Manley say they have reached an amended air agreement with Spain following negotiations in Madrid.
“The negotiations have resulted in a substantially liberalized air services arrangement with Spain, which enhances code-sharing rights, increases capacity and access, authorizes all-cargo service and provides greater flexibility for charter flights,” said Collenette. ”
Designated Canadian and Spanish airlines will now be permitted to offer more frequent flights, to serve additional destinations with own-aircraft flights, and to make use of code-sharing services. Charter services, such as those operated by Air Transat and Canada 3000, will also be covered under the new arrangements.
