Canadian government has expanded its air transport agreements with two of the Middle East and North Africa region's key aviation markets - UAE and Egypt

From visiting friends and family to getting goods to markets around the world, Canadians rely on a robust aviation industry with diverse international air services, said senior Canadian officials.

Expanding Canada's existing air transport relationships allows airlines to improve their service offerings, which means more options and convenience for passengers and businesses, they stated.

Marc Garneau, Minister of Transport said: "These expanded agreements were reached under Canada's Blue Sky policy, which encourages long-term, sustainable competition and the development of international air services."

"Under the Blue Sky Policy, the government has concluded new or expanded air transport agreements covering 104 countries," he stated.
