Montenegro and the United States signed an open-skies agreement aiming to liberalize air services of the U.S. and Montenegrin air carriers.
The U.S. and Montenegrin representatives signed the documents in Podgorica, on 28 November, and in Washington, on 5 December.
The previous aviation agreement (between Yugoslavia and the United States) governed air rights between Montenegro and the U.S. This is the first time that Montenegro signs this type of agreement with the United States.
According to the Open-skies Agreement, both countries can fly from, to, as well as beyond each other’s territories, with no restrictions regarding the type of aircraft, the frequency of flights and prices.
105 countries have open skies agreements with the United States, including Montenegro.
