Notes:

Bold denotes countries that are included under the U.S.-EU Air Transport Agreement

The Canada-U.S. agreement was reached in 2005, but delays to implementation left the Canada-UK agreement the first to be in place

Italics denote Members of MALIAT

Note that "Blue Sky" agreements are not necessarily "Open Skies" agreements. They tend to have liberal features under the new policy, but do not exhibit all the characteristics of open skies (e.g., 5ths and cargo 7ths). This table includes only Open Skies agreements.

C&R stands for "Comity and Reciprocity." Where for legal reasons agreements cannot be put into Provisional Effect, the Parties agree to apply the rights on the basis of comity and reciprocity.
