(MENAFN- Muscat Daily) Canada has signed air transport agreements with Oman Nigeria and Mali. The agreements reached under the country's Blue Sky policy will enable Canadian airlines to encourage long-term sustainable competition and development of international air services.

Lisa Raitt Canada's minister of transport said 'I am pleased to announce these three new air agreements with Nigeria Mali and Oman as they will offer more options and flexibility to Canadian travellers. These agreements demonstrate Canada's commitment to supporting the Canadian air industry by helping it expand its access to international markets.'

Over the past two years alone Canada announced new or expanded agreements with 30 countries. Ed Fast minister of international trade Canada said 'Our government is working to provide Canadian businesses including small-and-medium size enterprises with the tools they need to expand and succeed abroad and that includes expanded air agreements.
