Today the United States and St. Christopher and Nevis signed the U.S.-St. Christopher and Nevis Open Skies air transport agreement, which will liberalize our bilateral aviation relationship.

This agreement strengthens and expands our already strong trade and tourism links with St. Christopher and Nevis, and will benefit businesses and travelers in the United States and St. Christopher and Nevis alike. It will expand air service and encourage vigorous price competition by airlines, while safeguarding aviation safety and security.
