Singapore has inked Open Skies Agreements with Sierra Leone, Slovenia and Tanzania on the sidelines of the 38th Session of the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) Assembly held in Montreal, Canada, from 23 to 30 September 2013.
The agreements were signed by Mr Lui Tuck Yew, Minister for Transport, and his counterparts. Under each of the agreements, designated airlines will be able to fly between Singapore and the other country, as well as via and beyond to any third country, without restrictions in capacity, frequency or aircraft type.
Mr Lui said, "The agreements reflect the warm ties Singapore enjoys with Sierra Leone, Slovenia and Tanzania. They underscore Singapore's commitment to establishing a liberal air services framework in Singapore and internationally, so that carriers are able to freely respond to market demand and when opportunities arise, to better serve the travelling public and the needs of industry."
With these new agreements, Singapore now has Air Services Agreements with more than 120 countries, of which more than 50 are Open Skies Agreements.
