Canada, Algeria sign first air transport agreement
The governments of Canada and Algeria Wednesday signed their first ever air transport agreement.
Under the new agreement, Canadian and Algerian airlines will be able to offer scheduled services between the two countries directly or via code-share agreement.
“Direct air services will benefit passengers, shippers, airlines and airports,” said Lawrence Cannon, Canada’s Minister of Transport, Infrastructure and Communities.
Air Algerie plans to operate up to two flights per week between Algiers and Montreal while Air Canada has said that it will offer code-sharing services to Algeria via Europe.
