"We welcome the entry into force on August 21 of the Air Transport Agreement between the United States and Mexico that was signed on December 18, 2015.

"This new agreement will expand travel and trade between the United States and Mexico, and facilitate broader economic growth in both countries.

"By providing greater opportunities for passenger and cargo airlines to fly between any points in Mexico and the United States, the new agreement will benefit travelers, businesses, airports, and communities in both countries, as well as U.S. and Mexican airlines.

"Carriers will now be able to provide new services not available under the previous agreement. Passenger carriers will be able to provide new options for travelers and enhance competition, and cargo carriers will be able to link the United States and Mexico to global markets."
