Second stage of US-EU open skies to be signed late Jun-2010

US State Department's Bureau of Economic, Energy and Business Affairs stated the second phase of the US-EU open skies agreement is expected to be signed on 24-Jun-2010 (MarketWatch, 07-Jun-2010). A tentative agreement was formed in Mar-2010, following eight rounds of talks between EU and US representatives. More restrictions on services and limits between the EU and US are expected to be removed and the parties will increase cooperation on security.
