More airlines will have access to routes and airports in Mexico under an agreement reached Friday with the U.S. government.
The agreement, which enters into force on Jan. 1, 2016, is meant to increase the number of passenger and cargo planes landing in Mexico. Cargo airlines, for the first time, will have expanded opportunities to serve new destinations.
“This air transport agreement further elevates and strengthens the dynamic commercial and economic relationship between the United States and Mexico by facilitating greater trade and tourism,” said a State Department spokesman. “It is a key element of the U.S.-Mexico High Level Economic Dialogue, that aims to promote competitiveness and connectivity, foster economic growth, productivity and innovation, and partner for regional and global leadership.”
