Canada inks Blue Sky deal with New Zealand


SINGAPORE — Canada and New Zealand have signed a Blue Sky air transport agreement that allows any number of air carriers from either country to operate passenger and all-cargo scheduled air services as frequently as desired, to and from any point in either country’s territory.

 

The agreement was signed while both parties attended the recent Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) meeting in Singapore.

 

Air carriers of both countries will also be able to pick up traffic in each other’s territory and continue to a third country en route to or from their home territory.

 

The agreement also provides for enhanced all-cargo rights, allowing stand-alone cargo services between each other’s territory and third countries, and includes a fully flexible tariff regime.

 

This new air transport agreement between the two countries replaces the agreement that has been in force since 1985.
