BRIDGETOWN, Barbados -- A new open skies agreement between the United States and St Vincent and the Grenadines was signed on April 7, 2017, entering into force with immediate effect. This agreement replaces a more restrictive air transport agreement.
The US embassy in Bridgetown welcomed the signing of the new open skies agreement as strengthening the partnership between the two countries and deepening commercial and economic ties between the United States and St Vincent and the Grenadines.
“It will provide opportunities for airlines, travelers, businesses, airports and localities by allowing increased market access for passenger and cargo to fly between our two countries and beyond. In doing so, the new agreement will facilitate future travel and commerce between the United States and St Vincent and the Grenadines,” the embassy said.
