Jamaica And U.S. Ink Amendment To Open Skies Agreement

Jamaica and the United States of America have revised their Open Skies Air Transport Agreement to further strengthen the aviation partnership between the two countries and deepen commercial and economic ties.

Under an amendment signed on Thursday (May 10), the governments have agreed to allow all-cargo airlines from their respective countries to continue to third country destinations without having to return home first.

Minister of Transport and Mining, Hon. Robert Montague, in his remarks at the signing ceremony at the Ministry’s Maxfield Avenue offices in St. Andrew, noted that air services agreements smooth the progress of international and commercial air transport between territories.
