CANADA and the United Kingdom have concluded an open skies agreement in readiness for the UK's imminent exit from the European Union. The UK is Canada's third largest two-way air travel market.

The latest agreement is one of a number already reached by the UK's Department for Transport (DfT) with other countries, including the US.



The open skies deal will replace the existing EU aviation agreement with Canada as the UK continues to 'cement global ties' in readiness for future global trading relationships outside of the EU, London's Air Cargo News reported.



Canada's Minister of Transport Marc Garneau said: 'I am pleased with the conclusion of this open skies-type agreement, which will ensure that air services continue uninterrupted when the UK is no longer covered by the Canada-European Union Comprehensive Air Transport Agreement.



'This agreement is an expression of our robust long-standing air transport relationship and it will continue to support tourism, trade and investment between Canada and the UK.'
