New Air Transport Agreement between Canada and Poland

by Canadian Shipper

A new air transport agreement between Canada and Poland has been reached.

Canada’s Transport Minister David Collenette and Foreign Affairs Minister John Manley have announced that the new agreement expands opportunities for air carriers and liberalizes the conditions under which air services may be operated between Canada and Poland. In addition to the commercial benefits, the agreement also seeks to strengthen and modernize provisions on aviation security and safety.

“This agreement will provide the travelling public and shippers with a broader selection and more frequent services between the two countries. The new arrangements will also benefit the air carriers of both countries,” said Collenette.

As a direct result of this agreement, Air Canada plans to serve the market in conjunction with the flights of its Star Alliance partner airlines via intermediate European cities. Charter services such as those operated by Air Transat will be facilitated under the new arrangements. In addition, the Polish airline, LOT, plans to begin scheduled air services to Toronto.
