THE 1995 CANADA-UNITED STATES AIR TRANSPORT AGREEMENT: AN ANALYSIS OF THE INITIAL UNITED STATES RESPONSE

A new bilateral air agreement was finally concluded between the U.S. and Canada finally concluded on February 24, 1995, covering the largest international aviation market in terms of passenger volume involving the United States. This paper examines the first United States response to the new bilateral agreement, a block of 17 route announcements made with respect to scheduled service between the U.S. and Canada only three days after the new bilateral agreement was signed. The new routes were found to be primarily new links between major hubs on either side of the border. While the cities linked in the new routes already accounted for about 10 percent of the origin-destination market, it is expected that the passenger volumes will increase in these markets with the more convenient air services, since only five of the 17 city-pairs previously had direct non-stop flights.
