Aviation experts have claimed that the imminent arrival of the EU-US open skies agreement will see major benefits for passengers.The Air Transport Users Council (AUC) claimed that further liberalisation of transatlantic flight routes would create further competition, bringing air travellers the benefits of lower fares and a wider choice of carriers.Coming into effect in March, the open skies agreement signed last year will see EU and US airlines granted permission to fly any routes between the two, while allowing American carriers to operate freely between European destinations and EU airlines to fly openly from the US to third party countries.James Fremantle, industry affairs manager at the AUC, said: “When Europe was liberalised the e-market brought in airlines such as easyJet and Ryanair and the air fares dropped dramatically, so hopefully we’ll see a similar thing with the open skies in going to America.”He added that the implementation of Open Skies could go hand in hand with Heathrow Airport expansion, claiming: “This should create a situation where passengers have more flights and more choices.”An open skies agreement was this week confirmed between the United States and Australia, allowing local flag carrier Qantas to profit from a series of popular new US routes.ReturnOne wayMulti-cityFromAdd nearby airports ToAdd nearby airportsDepart14/08/2019Return21/08/2019Cabin Class & Travellers1 adult, EconomyDirect flights onlySearch flights Maplast_img
