SINGAPORE - Airlines of both Singapore and the Federated States of Micronesia will be able to fly between both countries after an Open Skies Agreement (OSA) was signed on Monday.
The OSA allows airlines to fly between Singapore and any points in the Federated States of Micronesia, via and beyond to any third country, without restrictions in capacity, frequency or aircraft type.
Transport Minister Mr Lui Tuck Yew, who signed the agreement with the Secretary of the Department of Transportation, Communications and Infrastructure of the Federated States of Micronesia The Honourable Francis Itimai, said that the OSA reflects the warm bilateral ties between both nations.
"[The OSA] underscores both countries' commitment to establish a fully liberal air services framework that will allow our carriers to react quickly to market demand when opportunities arise," Mr Lui said.
With the Singapore - Federated States of Micronesia OSA, Singapore has established more than 120 Air Services Agreements, of which more than 50 are OSAs.
