Canada, UK conclude agreement to maintain flights after Brexit

Canadian Minister of Transport Marc Garneau announced the successful conclusion of a new Open Skies-type air transport agreement between Canada and the United Kingdom.

The new agreement will allow any number of Canadian and British air carriers to operate between both countries, and gives those airlines full flexibility on route selection (including via third countries), frequency of service, and pricing.

The agreement also includes unrestricted rights for all-cargo services as well as code-share services (when an air carrier sells seats on a flight operated by another carrier).

The new agreement will take effect when the United Kingdom is no longer covered by the Canada-European Union Comprehensive Air Transport Agreement.
