BRUSSELS–The European Union and Canada have reached a deal that will
open up their aviation markets to each other, removing restrictions
on ownership and direct flights, EU officials said Tuesday.
EU Transport Commissioner Antonio Tajani said the pact will lead to
more trans-Atlantic trade and spur competition.
"The new agreement makes the EU-Canada market one of the most open
in the world," Tajani said in a statement.
Under the deal, which is expected to come into force in the first
half of 2009, airlines based in the 27-nation bloc will be able to
operate direct flights to Canada from anywhere in Europe. It also
removes restrictions on routes, prices and the number of flights
allowed between the two sides. Similar access rights will be enjoyed
by Canadian carriers to fly to the European market.
Airlines will also be able to launch new code-sharing agreements –
which let them book passengers on one another's planes.
