Airlines of both Singapore and Colombia will have the flexibility to operate any number of direct passenger services between both countries.
This followed the signing of an Air Services Agreement (ASA) on Monday by Singapore’s Minister for Transport and Second Minister for Foreign Affairs, Mr Lui Tuck Yew, and Colombia’s Minister for Foreign Affairs, Ms María Ángela Holguín Cuéllar.
Under the ASA, both countries’ airlines can also operate, under certain restrictions, up to seven weekly passenger services and seven weekly cargo services between, and beyond, both countries.
The signing took place at the sidelines of a state visit by Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos Calderón from 6 to 8 May 2012.
