Iceland and Norway join EU-US Air Transport Agreement

European Union, the US, Iceland and Norway signed (17-Dec-2009) an aviation agreement to extend the scope of the EU-US Open Skies Agreement to Iceland and Norway. Both countries are fully integrated in the single European aviation market and apply all EU aviation legislation.

If no agreement has been reached by Nov-2010, both sides - now including Iceland and Norway on the European side - could suspend certain traffic rights. [more]
