South Korea’s Ministry of Land, Transport and Maritime Affairs announced it has signed an open skies agreement with Spain to meet growing air passenger and cargo demand (Yonhap, 09-May-2011). The agreement is the first of its kind between South Korea and a European country. Under the agreement, Korean carriers will be able to operate an unlimited number of times weekly to any Spanish destination. The carriers were previously only able to operate a maximum of four times weekly services to Madrid and Barcelona. Korean Air operates three times weekly Madrid service at present.
