Guyana will soon sign on with the US and its open skies policy.

Guyana will soon sign on with the US and its open skies policy. The agreement is expected to be sign on to soon by the Guyana government and will pave the way for the liberalization of the international aviation industry.

What the agreement seeks to do is to liberalize the rules for international aviation markets and minimize government intervention as it applies to passenger, all-cargo, and combination air transportation, as well as scheduled and charter services; and additionally to adjust the regime under which military and other state-based flights may be permitted. That’s according to the agreement. Cabinet Secretary Dr. Roger Luncheon today said the Cabinet offered no objections to the move and he pointed out too that other Caricom states have already signed on.

When the agreement is signed, it will provide easier access to airlines from both countries being given the green light for operations.

The US has been pursuing open skies agreements with various countries for decades.
