The governments of both countries signed an Open Skies agreement which allows designated airlines to fly between the two countries.
From a statement issued by the Ministerio de Obras Publicas y Transportes (MOPT) – Ministry Public Works and Transport:
The Minister of the MOPT, Carlos Segnini and his counterpart from Singapore, Lui Tuck Yew, signed a memorandum of understanding which will allow for, in the short term, a formal open skies agreement between the two countries.
Because of this the designated airlines will be able to operate flights which connect the two nations, even via third countries without restrictions on capacity, frequency or type of aircraft.
“This is a big step for harnessing the energy of the Asia Pacific. With this agreement, Costa Rica will position itself better in these places where they have gradually established themselves as solid bastions of trade and international tourism, thanks to their favorable air connectivity with the rest of the world,” said Segnini of this specific result of their tour made by this Asian nation.
He also emphasized that this agreement is the result of the excellent relations between the two countries and will enable aircraft operators to react quickly to market demands.
