Singapore and Malta conclude open skies agreement
Singapore - Singapore and Malta have inked an open skies agreement (OSA), allowing full flexibility on air services by carriers of both countries.
The OSA was reached during air services consultations between the Civil Aviation authority of Singapore (CAAS) and the Department of Civil Aviation from Malta in Valetta, Malta in July this year. Effective 1 December 2010, the pact allows Singapore carriers to fly as frequently as desired between Singapore and points in Malta, as well as beyond Malta to any other city in the world. Likewise, Maltese carriers will be able to operate any number of services to and beyond Singapore.
"This agreement is a reflection of Singapore and Malta's warm bilateral ties and the commitment of both sides in establishing a fully liberal air services framework," CAAS director general and CEO Lim Kim Choon said. "The OSA will enable our carriers to capitalise on market opportunities that arise in future."
The latest OSA brings the total number of OSAs signed with Singapore to 30 countries, including 15 in the EU.
