Air Canada welcomes Canada-European Union air transport agreement

MONTREAL, Dec. 18 /CNW Telbec/ - Air Canada issued the following statement on the occasion of today's signing of a comprehensive air transport agreement between Canada and the European Union (EU).

"Today's signing by Canada of a comprehensive air transport agreement with the 27 Member States of the European Union marks an important development in increasing access to Canada's second largest trading partner," said Duncan Dee, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer.
