Air pact with Australia approved

New Delhi: The Union cabinet today approved a revised air services agreement between India and Australia for designating more than one airlines to fly between the two nations, a day ahead of Australian premier John Howard’s visit.
The agreement will throw open destinations Down Under to private airlines like Jet Airways. Parliamentary affairs minister Priya Ranjan Das Munshi told reporters after the cabinet meeting, “Under the new agreement, both the countries will have the right to designate as many airlines as they wish.”
The minister said the agreement was revised during the bilateral civil aviation consultations in September 2004 and it would lead to the opening up of the sky between the two nations and enhancing the number of air services to a significant extent.
