(eTN) – Singapore has concluded three bilateral Open Skies Agreements (OSAs) with the Scandinavian countries, comprising Denmark, Norway and Sweden.

With these OSAs, airlines of both Singapore and the Scandinavian countries will be able to fly between Singapore and any point in Scandinavia, via and beyond to any third country, without restrictions in capacity, frequency or aircraft type. The OSAs are even more liberal than conventional OSAs, as it provides for unlimited “hubbing” rights for cargo airlines of Singapore and the Scandinavian countries. As an illustration, a Singapore cargo airline will be allowed to base its aircraft in any point in Scandinavia and use this as a hub to operate to any other country, without any restriction on destination, frequency of service or capacity. The same applies to Scandinavian carriers.

Mr Lim Kim Choon, director-general and chief executive officer, Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore, said, “The conclusion of these agreements reflect the strong commitment of both sides in establishing a fully liberal air services framework. These agreements will also generate benefits that extend beyond the aviation sector, promoting greater trade and investment flows between Singapore and Scandinavia.”

Currently, Singapore Airlines operates three weekly passenger services between Singapore and Copenhagen in Denmark. Singapore Airlines Cargo also operates five weekly all-cargo services between Singapore and Copenhagen via points in the Middle East and Europe.
With the conclusion of these OSAs, Singapore will have open skies arrangements with more than 20 countries, including 13 with European Union countries.
