Canada-Colombia sign new agreement allowing unlimited flights
Canada’s Minister of Transport, Omar Alghabra, announced the signing of an expanded air transport agreement between Canada and Colombia. The expanded agreement allows selected airlines to operate an unlimited number of flights to an unlimited number of destinations in Canada and Colombia. The prior agreement limited each country to 14 passenger and 14 cargo flights per week.
Colombia is currently Canada’s largest South American international air transport market. Also, many study permit holders come from this country. With the expanded agreement, airlines of Canada and Colombia will better respond to the needs of this growing air transport market.
“This significantly expanded agreement will improve connectivity for passengers and businesses in Canada and Colombia, and demonstrates our commitment to enhance air services with Latin America. Our government will continue to strengthen our economy and our air sector, and this expanded agreement will help Canadian businesses do just that.”The Honourable Omar Alghabra, Minister of Transport.

Since the launch of the Blue Sky policy in November 2006, the Government of Canada has negotiated air transport agreements with more than 100 countries. Currently, Colombia is Canada’s 19th largest international air transport market.
