Singapore and Uruguay have entered an open skies agreement, Singapore’s 120th air services agreement and 50th open skies agreement.
“Singapore carriers will be allowed to base their aircraft in Uruguay and use Uruguay as a hub to operate to any other country without restrictions on capacity, frequency or aircraft type,” says Singapore’s ministry of transport.
“The same privilege applies to Uruguay carriers. The cabotage rights allow Singapore carriers to operate like a domestic carrier in Uruguay and to mount any number of services between Uruguay cities, and vice versa.”
Singapore has been active in signing open skies agreements with other countries – generally small ones – with which it has no current air links. This year, it has entered open skies agreements with Sierra Leone, Slovenia, Tanzania and Barbados.
