On April 18, the United States and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia initialed the U.S.-Saudi Arabia Open Skies Agreement. The Agreement, which will be applied on the basis of comity and reciprocity pending its entry into force, will liberalize our bilateral aviation relationship.

This agreement strengthens and expands our already strong trade and tourism links with Saudi Arabia, and will benefit American and Saudi Arabian businesses and travelers. It will expand air service and encourage vigorous price competition by airlines, while safeguarding aviation safety and security.
