AsiaOne | Tuesday, Aug 5, 2014

SINGAPORE - Minister for Transport Lui Tuck Yew and Vanuatu's Minister for Foreign Affairs Sato Kilman have signed an Air Services Agreement (ASA) in Singapore today, said a Ministry of Transport statement.

Under the ASA, airlines of Singapore and Vanuatu will be able to fly between the two countries, as well as via or beyond to any third country. There will be no restrictions on capacity, frequency and aircraft type.

Mr Lui said, "The conclusion of this ASA reflects the warm bilateral ties between Singapore and Vanuatu. The fully liberal air services framework established will allow carriers from both countries to respond quickly to market opportunities."

Singapore has established about 120 ASAs, including the Singapore-Vanuatu ASA.
