Improved air transportation between Mexico and the United States is forecast as a result of a new agreement signed by the two countries in November.
Current limits on the number of airlines that can provide passenger service have been removed, which could mean new carriers entering the market, and new destinations being offered by existing carriers, said the United States Transportation Department.
Air cargo options could also be improved through access to locations that are not currently available.
“Travellers, shippers, airlines, and the economies of both countries will benefit from competitive pricing and more convenient air service,” Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx said.
The Secretariat of Communications and Transportation said the agreement will allow more flexibility in air traffic, improve connectivity, and bring better service to existing and new routes. It will take effect January 1.
Final details of the new agreement are not yet available.
