Singapore and Belize open skies.

This seems like a really strange agreement because what are the chances that we see an airline from these two countries, flying or stopping in each others countries. Just seems really strange to me. Any thoughts?

It happens all the time. Last year they did so with Jamaica. Also, I think it can potentially benefit cargo flights as well.

"This latest agreement brings the number of air services agreements Singapore has with other countries to more than 130, of which more than 60 are open skies agreements."

You never know which place will become the next DXB.

It has been the Singapore government's policy to sign totally open skies air services agreements with other countries with a similar liberal approach for many years. It perceives that such agreements encourage the maximum competition to the benefit of the consumer. As an example the UK / Singapore Open Skies Agreement dates back to October 2007 and came into force at the time of the more restrictive EU / US Open Skies Agreement. It allows British airlines to operate between Singapore and any other country with an open skies policy. Similarly any Singaporean airline can fly between the UK and any such third country:
