The Dominican government signed a new air transport agreement with Canada on Thursday, 2 February 2023 that will expand flight operations between the two countries. Tourism will benefit but also trade and connectivity.
The agreement authorizes airlines to operate beyond the current established frequencies. More airlines, flights and new destinations will soon be announced.
The agreement establishes that market conditions will determine frequencies and capacity of the agreed services. Traffic rights up to the Sixth Freedom are granted for passenger, cargo and combination flights.
The agreement covers charter or non-scheduled flights and provisions for code-share operations and ground handling services.
Airlines and airports of both countries will be able to operate direct flights and connections from any airport in the Dominican Republic and Canada.
