Singapore and Costa Rica sign open skies agreement for airlines

SINGAPORE- Singapore has signed a new open skies agreement with Costa Rica. The agreement allows designated airlines to fly between both countries, said the Ministry of Transport in a statement on Tuesday.

Under the agreement, there will not be any restrictions in capacity, frequency or aircraft type.

Minister for Transport Mr Lui Tuck Yew signed the agreement on Tuesday in Singapore with Minister of Public Works and Transport of Costa Rica Carlos Segnini Villalobos.

Said Mr Lui: "The signing of this agreement reflects the warm bilateral ties between Singapore and Costa Rica, and underscores both countries' commitment to establish a fully liberal air services framework which allows our carriers to react quickly to market demand when opportunities arise."

This brings the number of air services agreements Singapore has with other countries to more than 130, of which more than 60 are open skies agreements.
