Towards open skies for airlines in Canada

Economic Note on the current international trend toward open markets in aviation

Towards open skies for airlines in Canada

The federal Ministry of Transport appears prepared to take advantage of the current international trend toward open markets in aviation and to move ahead with the liberalization process that began in the early 1980s. In particular, it is considering the possibility of allowing foreign airlines to fly between Canadian cities – known as “cabotage” – and of raising the limit on foreign ownership of airlines in Canada, currently set at 25%. Both would be excellent news for consumers and for the Canadian economy generally.
