US and Barbados reach Open-Skies agreement

US and Barbados reached (02-Jul-2010) an Open-Skies agreement that will liberalise US-Barbados air services for airlines of both countries. Barbados will become the 99th US Open-Skies partner.  Upon signing of the agreement, airlines from both countries will be allowed to select routes, destinations and prices for passenger and cargo service based on consumer demand and market conditions. The agreement, which was reached on 01-Jul-2010, provides airlines, for the first time, with codesharing and intermodal rights. The previous US-Barbados air service agreement, signed in 1982, contained restrictions on the cities that carriers could serve and placed limits on charter operations. The new agreement will remove these restrictions and provide important enhanced cargo rights. [more]
