The Honourable Marc Garneau, Minister of Transport, announced that Canada has successfully concluded new and expanded air transport agreements with Ecuador, Tunisia and Grenada.
The expanded air transport agreement with Ecuador allows designated airlines to operate more passenger and cargo flights per week to and from Canada. The agreement also allows designated airlines to serve any city in the other country's territory.
Similarly, the expanded air transport agreement with Tunisia allows designated airlines to operate more scheduled flights per week between Canada and Tunisia.
"We are pleased to develop new air transport relationships and expand existing ones with our partner countries around the world," Minister Garneau said. "These new and expanded agreements provide air carriers with additional flexibility to serve these growing markets, which is good news for travellers, shippers, and the air transport and tourism industries."
The new agreement with Grenada is an Open Skies-type agreement, which allows an unlimited number of passenger and cargo flights between Canada and Grenada.
These new and expanded agreements take effect immediately.
