United States and Colombia Sign Open Skies Agreement
Office of the Spokesman
May 10, 2011
On May 10, in Bogota, Under Secretary of State William J. Burns and Colombian Foreign Minister Maria Angela Holguin signed a new air transport agreement which, following a subsequent exchange of notes between the two countries, will establish a bilateral Open Skies air transportation relationship.
The Agreement will strengthen and expand our already strong trade and tourism links with Colombia, benefiting U.S. and Colombian businesses and travelers by expanding air service and encouraging vigorous price competition by airlines, while safeguarding aviation safety and security.
