U.S., Mali sign open skies agreement
The United States and Mali have agreed to loosen government controls on air services between the two countries, the State Department said.
Under the open skies agreement, airlines will be more free to set routes, frequencies, capacity, pricing and other commercial terms. All-cargo airlines from each nation will be allowed to serve third countries without having to connect to their home country.
Mail is the 15th country in sub-Saharan Africa to sign an aviation agreement with the U.S.
