“Canada’s major airlines welcome the expansion of the Air Transport Agreement with Cuba, one of Canada’s most important air travel markets,” said Marc-André O’Rourke, Executive Director of the NACC. “This new agreement will create opportunities to further develop air services between the two countries while boosting trade, investment and tourism.”

The NACC supports a balanced air liberalization policy framework for Canada that ensures a level playing field and provides maximum reciprocal benefits for all stakeholders including consumers, communities, airports, the tourism industry and Canada’s airlines.
