SINGAPORE CONCLUDES OPEN SKIES AGREEMENT WITH BELIZE
Singapore has concluded an Open Skies Agreement with Belize on 11 May 2017. Under the Agreement, the airlines of Singapore and Belize will be able to fly any number of services between both countries as well as beyond to any third country, with no restrictions on capacity, frequency, aircraft type and routing schedules. In addition, cargo carriers will be able to base aircraft in each other’s countries and use it as a hub for operations to any third country.
2 The Air Services Agreement (ASA) was signed in Singapore by Coordinating Minister for Infrastructure and Minister for Transport Khaw Boon Wan and Belize’s Minister of Tourism and Civil Aviation Jose Manuel Heredia.
3 Minister Khaw said, “The conclusion of this ASA reflects the warm bilateral ties between Singapore and Belize. The fully liberal air services framework established will allow carriers from both countries to respond quickly to market opportunities.”
4 Adopting a liberal aviation policy, Singapore continuously seeks to further enhance its connectivity to the world, enabling businesses to extend their market reach, forge partnerships, foster cultural links and personal ties that span the globe. With the Singapore-Belize ASA, Singapore has concluded Air Services Agreements with more than 130 States and Territories, of which over 60 are Open Skies Agreements.
