Singapore, Kiribati ink open skies pact

SINGAPORE and the Pacific nation of Kiribati have signed an open skies agreement allowing airlines of both countries to fly any number of services to any destinations from airports of either country.

The agreement, which was signed on Monday, allows airlines of both countries to fly between the countries and beyond to any third country, with no restrictions on capacity, frequency, aircraft type and routing.

Singapore Second Minister for Transport and Minister for Education (School) Ng Chee Meng said: "This is testament to the strong bilateral relationship between Singapore and Kiribati. This agreement will open up new opportunities for our carriers, enable greater movement of people and goods between the two countries, and benefit both businesses and people."

With the new pact, Singapore now has air services agreements with more than 140 states and territories, of which more than 70 are open skies agreements.
