South American Country Becomes 101st Open-Skies Partner
Representatives of the United States and Brazil have agreed to
implement an Open-Skies aviation regime, which will significantly
liberalize U.S.-Brazil air services for airlines of both countries
over a transition period.
"This agreement means the travelers, shippers, airlines and
economies of both the United States and Brazil will benefit from
competitive pricing and more convenient service," said U.S.
Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood on Monday.
The agreement immediately removes restrictions on pricing and on
the routes between each country that can be served by U.S. and
Brazilian scheduled and charter airlines. The agreement also
provides immediately for full code-share rights and additional
charter flexibility. Between October 2011 and October 2014,
U.S. carriers will be allowed to operate significant increases in
scheduled combination, all-cargo and charter flights, including
additional services to the currently restricted and highly
congested Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro airports.
When full Open Skies take effect in October 2015, airlines from
the United States and Brazil will be allowed to select routes,
destinations and prices for passenger, cargo and charter services
based on consumer demand and market conditions.
