Canada and Singapore reach new air services agreement

The Canadian Government announced on 7 November 2007 that it had negotiated a new air transport agreement with Singapore. Although creating new opportunities, the Canadian Airports Council noted that the new agreement is not a "open skies" one.

Twelve months prior to this announcement a 6 November 2006 story in The Vancouver Sun gave the Vancouver Airport perspective.

The Vancouver Sun article you referred to was published in November 2006, not November 2007.

It is noteworthy that the new agreement reached with Singapore is far less than Open Skies and comes A FULL YEAR after the government announced that Open Skies was going to be its new approach.
