The Argentine government’s crusade to expand the open skies policy to other markets was strengthened with the signing of a new agreement with Canada.

After adding open skies agreements with Brazil, Chile, Peru, Ecuador and Uruguay, Argentina has signed a new one with the first country outside the region: Canada.

In this way, the South American country celebrates the liberalization of flights between Argentina and Canada, which will “increase connectivity, expand operational capacities, generate unlimited frequency conditions and add new destinations through the elimination of current restrictions,” the Government reported in a statement.

Thanks to this agreement, the restriction of 7 weekly flights with a maximum of 2,000 seats will be changed to unlimited frequencies that each airline will be able to determine according to market forecasts. Airlines will also be allowed to decide the number of flights and destinations of their stopovers in order to expand the range of routes and, in turn, make them more competitive.

As for cargo transportation, the limit will go from 26 flights per half-year to unlimited flights, also allowing for the addition of destinations and cargo capacities that each airline can choose. In addition, restrictions on destination points are eliminated, allowing for the possibility of reaching more places in Argentina.

The signing was attended on behalf of the Argentine Government by the Secretary of Transportation of the Nation, Franco Mogetta; the Secretary of Tourism, Environment and Sports, Daniel Scioli; and the Secretary of Foreign Affairs, Ambassador Leopoldo Sahores.

On behalf of Canada, the Head of Air Negotiations for Global Affairs, Shendra Melia, the Minister of Transport, Stephen Worth, the representative of the Canadian Transportation Agency, Nathan Charest, the representative of Global Affairs, Pamela Denchev, and the Canadian Ambassador to Argentina, Reid Douglas Sirrs, were present.
