London, The United States and Britain have
reached a new open skies agreement that will maintain air links
between the two countries after Britain leaves the European Union.
The agreement, known as the new “open sky,” will replace the
current EU open skies agreement with the United States, which will not
include Britain after it leaves EU on March 29, German Transport
Minister Chris Grayling said.
The agreement with the United States is one of nine arrangements
for bilateral air services that have been secured by Britain so far and
other agreements with Albania, Georgia, Iceland, Israel, Kosovo,
Montenegro, Morocco and Switzerland, while the open skies
agreement with Canada has reached an advanced stage.
