OTTAWA, Ont.–Canada has expanded its Air Transport Agreement with Mexico.
The expanded agreement builds on the existing Canada-Mexico Air Transport Agreement, negotiated in 2011. Canada and Mexico already enjoy a liberal air transport relationship, allowing any number of airlines from both countries to offer services between any Canadian and Mexican cities. This expanded agreement adds to that by removing administrative requirements to make it easier for airlines to introduce new prices. Canadian and Mexican airlines will also be able to serve third countries when operating between Canada and Mexico. For example, a Canadian airline could fly from Canada to Mexico via the United States, said the release.
The new agreement was reached under Canada’s Blue Sky policy.
“Canada’s commercial relationship with Mexico is strong and growing. By making the movement of goods and people faster and easier, this expanded agreement will continue to facilitate trade and investment between our countries and help Canadian companies grow and succeed,” said the Honourable Chrystia Freeland, Minister of International Trade.
