UK and Antigua sign Air Services Agreement

The UK and Antigua today signed a new aviation agreement which removes most of the remaining restrictions on air services between the two countries.

The agreement, which comes into effect today, updates the previous agreement of 1985 and was signed in the House of Commons by Aviation Minister Jim Fitzpatrick and the Antiguan Minister for Tourism and Civil Aviation, Harold Lovell.

Mr Fitzpatrick said:

"I am very pleased to sign this new agreement, which will be good for passengers, for the aviation industry and for the development of the tourist industry in Antigua.

"It confirms the already close links that exist between our two countries. And it represents another step forward in liberalising air services by removing out-dated restrictions on airlines' ability to fly people to the places they want to go."
