Mexico, May 6 (Notimex). - The governments of Mexico and Germany signed an amendment agreement to the Convention on Air Transport, which will boost air connectivity, which will benefit tourism and bilateral trade.
The head of the Ministry of Communications and Transportation (SCT, for its acronym in Spanish) of Mexico, Javier Jiménez Espriú, and the minister of Foreign Affairs of Germany, Heiko Maas, agreed to strengthen cooperation on the matter, through this bilateral instrument that regulates commercial air operations, in order to generate favorable conditions for airlines.
The signing of the agreement, within the framework of the Binational Commission Mexico-Germany, creates a flexible scenario that allows the multi-designation of airlines, the operation of multi-destination and frequency, as well as long-term commercial planning for air transport companies.
The SCT said in a statement that Mexico and Germany are encouraging, with the amendment of the agreement, cooperation in air matters.
By the end of 2018, nearly half a million passengers and almost 60 thousand tons of cargo between the two territories were mobilized through air transport, with an average annual growth rate of 8.0 percent in passengers and 27 percent in cargo.
