US, TT sign open skies agreement

THE UNITED States and TT have reached a comprehensive Open Skies agreement to expand and liberalise bilateral civil aviation relationship, an emailed release from the US Department of State.

The release stated that the agreement was initialed on May 1, after three days of negotiation in Port-of-Spain between a TT delegations and an American team from the US Department of State and Department of Transportation.

The TT delegation was led by Cecil Bernard and the US delegation was led by Kris Urs, director, Office of Aviation Negotiations, US Department of State.

The Open Skies agreement initialed by the US and TT represents a market-oriented approach to aviation relations: airlines, not governments, will decide which cities to serve, the frequency of flights, the equipment used, and the prices charged.

“The agreement will strengthen and expand our already strong trade and tourism links with Trinidad and Tobago and provide significant benefits to airlines of the United States and Trinidad and Tobago and the travelling public, while preserving our commitments to aviation safety and security,” the email stated.
