Negotiators for the United States and Brazil initialed a text for a new air transport agreement in Rio de Janeiro on December 3, 2010, which once formally approved will establish an Open Skies air transportation relationship between our two countries. The delegations also initialed a Memorandum of Understanding, which upon signature will significantly expand services between our two countries and provides for most elements of Open Skies.

The Agreement will strengthen and expand our already strong trade and tourism links with Brazil, benefiting U.S. and Brazilian businesses and travelers by expanding air service and encouraging vigorous price competition by airlines, while safeguarding aviation safety and security.
