US and Mexico open the door to new crossborder routes

A new civil aviation agreement between the US and Mexico, due to come into force from January 2016, could see major new cross-border opportunities emerge for cargo carriers.
The agreement includes “unlimited market access for US and Mexican air carriers, improved intermodal rights, pricing flexibility, and other important commercial rights,” according to a statement from the US Department of Transportation
Negotiated and agreed as a key element of the US-Mexico High Level Economic Dialogue, the agreement is set to see, for the first time, both cargo and passenger airlines having commercial freedom to fly between any city in Mexico and any city in the US.
Cargo airlines, in particular, will have expanded opportunities to provide service to new destinations that are not available under the current agreement.
“Travellers, shippers, airlines, and the economies of both countries will benefit from competitive pricing and more convenient air service,” said US Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx.
