U.S., AUSTRALIA SIGN CARGO AGREEMENT
U.S. and Australia aviation officials have reached an agreement to lift
all restrictions on all-cargo services between the two countries, the U.S.
Department of Transportation said.
The so-called "open skies" agreement frees Australian and U.S.
freighter operators to fly with no restrictions on frequency, type of aircraft or rates.
The cargo deal is seen as a precursor to a passenger deal next year.
