U.S.-Barbados open skies reached
The United States and Barbados on July 1 entered an open skies agreement that will liberalize air services between the two countries.
Upon signature of the agreement, airlines from both countries will be allowed to select routes, destinations and prices for both passenger and cargo service based on consumer demand and market conditions, the U.S. Transportation Department said in a statement.
The previous U.S.-Barbados air service agreement, signed in 1982, contained restrictions on the cities that carriers could serve and placed limits on charter operations. The new agreement will remove these restrictions and provide enhanced cargo rights, DOT said.
