Expanded air transport agreement with Thailand to provide more travel options for Canadians
The new agreement, which replaces the existing 1989 agreement, establishes an allowance of 21 flights per week for each country. It also enhances rights that allow airlines to extend Canada–Thailand services to third countries (otherwise known as fifth freedom rights) on up to seven of the 21 weekly flights. In addition, the new agreement enhances previously existing code-share rights (when an air carrier sells seats on a flight operated by another carrier) and modernizes aviation safety and security articles as well as doing business provisions.
Is that possible to have a direct flight from YVR to BKK? The agreement include 5th freedom rights so maybe it's going to be a flight with a stop ?
