US, Barbados reach Open-Skies agreement


Representatives of the United States and Barbados have reached an Open-Skies Agreement that will liberalize United States-Barbados air services for airlines of both countries. Barbados will become the 99th US Open-Skies partner.

This agreement means the travelers, airlines and economies of both the United States and Barbados will benefit from competitive pricing and more convenient service, said United States Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood.

Upon signature of the agreement, airlines from both countries will be allowed to select routes, destinations and prices for both passenger and cargo service based on consumer demand and market conditions. The agreement, which was reached on July 1, provides airlines, for the first time, with codesharing and intermodal rights. (PR)
