Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Thursday, 12 February 2009

Singapore has concluded an Open Skies Agreement (OSA) with the Sultanate of Oman to allow for full flexibility of air services operated by carriers of both countries.

The Memorandum of Understanding on Air Services was signed by the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS)'s Deputy Director-General (Development), Mr Tan Lye Teck, and H.E. Mohamed Bin Sakhar Al-Amri, Undersecretary for Civil Aviation Affairs, Oman.

The OSA between Singapore and Oman allows Singapore carriers to operate any number of passenger and cargo flights between Singapore and points in Oman, as well as beyond Oman to any other city in the world. Likewise, carriers of Oman may operate any number of flights to and beyond Singapore.

With this, Singapore has concluded OSAs with five countries of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), namely Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates.

"I am glad that both Singapore and Oman have concluded an open skies agreement, allowing carriers of both countries to take advantage of the immense growth opportunities in air travel between Singapore and the Middle East," said Mr Lim Kim Choon, Director-General and Chief Executive Officer, CAAS.

 "In 2008, passenger traffic between Singapore and the Middle East grew significantly by 15% compared to the previous year. Indeed, the Middle East is a region where we continue to see increases in air
services even during such economically challenging times," Mr Lim Kim Choon added.

With the Singapore-Oman OSA, Singapore has concluded OSAs with more than 30 countries. To date, Changi Airport is served by 84 scheduled airlines operating more than 4,600 weekly scheduled flights to 191 cities in 60 countries.
