Singapore has signed an open skies agreement with Tonga.

Under the agreement, carriers from Singapore and Tonga will be able to operate services between the two countries, says Singapore's transport ministry.

Airlines from both countries will also be able to fly beyond to any third country with no restrictions on capacity, frequency or aircraft type.

"The signing of this [open skies agreement] reflects the warm bilateral ties between Singapore and Tonga, and underscores both countries' commitment to establish a fully liberal air services framework that will allow our carriers to respond quickly to market demand when opportunities arise," says Singapore's transport minister Lui Tuck Yew.
