New air travel agreement in effect with Mexico

Published by Steve Coleman on August 15, 2011

The number of countries with more open access to Canadian skies soared to 57 last week with the addition of Mexico.

An expansion on the existing agreement allows air carriers in both countries to offer more services to any city in the two countries. The agreement also added more flexibility to adjust prices and improves the existing safety and security provisions.

Mexico is Canada's third-largest travel market.

The agreement works at the administrative level. A company will be able to offer new services once the Minister of Transport, Infrastructure and Communities has given the proposal an OK.

Canada also added Brazil and Costa Rica last week to its expanding list of countries with better air connections.
