Singapore concluded bilateral “Open Skies” agreements (OSAs) with Denmark, Sweden and Norway late last month. The new deals will allow Singaporean air carriers to fly between Singapore and any destination in Scandinavia, via and beyond to any third country without any restrictions in terms of passenger capacity, service frequency or aircraft type. In return, Scandinavian airlines now enjoy the same rights into and through Singapore.

According to the Singapore authorities, the OSAs signed with their Scandinavian counterparts are more liberal than traditional Open Skies arrangements in that they allow for unlimited hubbing rights for cargo operators. The new agreements increase to 20 the number of countries with Open Skies arrangements with Singapore. They include 13 member states of the European Union.
