U.S., Mexico Agree on Greater Access for Airlines

The U.S. and Mexico have reached an aviation agreement that will expand access for passenger and cargo airlines flying between the two countries, the U.S. Department of State said Friday.

The agreement is scheduled to go into effect on Jan. 1.

The deal still falls short of the so-called “Open Skies” partnerships, which the U.S. has been pursuing since 1992. Under those agreements, governments have no say in commercial airline decisions on routes, capacity and pricing.
 
The two countries have been trying to build stronger economic ties despite issues on drugs and illegal immigration. Last year, the countries formed the so-called High Level Economic Dialogue to promote economic growth. The aviation agreement, U.S. officials said, is a “key element” under that pact by easing trade and tourism.

Cargo airlines, for the first time, will have more opportunities to provide service to destinations that had not been allowed before, the State Department said.
