The United Department of State says the Trump administration has welcomed the signing of the new Open Skies Agreement between the United States and St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

The agreement, which was signed on Friday, April 7 entered into force immediately, said the State Department, stating that this agreement replaces “a more restrictive air transport agreement.”

“The new Open Skies agreement strengthens the partnership between the two countries, and deepens commercial and economic ties between the United States and St. Vincent and the Grenadines,” the statement said.

“It will provide opportunities for airlines, travelers, businesses, airports and localities by allowing increased market access for passenger and cargo to fly between our two countries and beyond,” it added.

In doing so, the State Department said the new agreement will facilitate future travel and commerce between the United States and St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
