Reached under Canada’s Blue Sky policy, which encourages long-term, sustainable competition and the development of international air services, the first-time, code-sharing agreements will make travel to and from Nigeria, Mali and Oman easier and more convenient. Code-sharing occurs when an air carrier sells seats on a flight operated by another carrier, allowing it to expand its network and product offerings.

The new rights under these agreements are available for use by airlines immediately.
