May 08, Auckland: New Zealand has signed an air services agreement with Sri Lanka Thursday enabling the New Zealanders to travel to and do business with Sri Lanka easily.

New Zealand Transport Minister Gerry Brownlee said the signing of an air services agreement with Sri Lanka is the latest in a string of similar agreements making it easier for New Zealanders to travel and do business internationally.

The agreement will enable airlines to offer flights from New Zealand to Sri Lanka and then on to other destinations, with tickets able to be sold for either or both sectors.

The New Zealand Minister signed today's agreement extending 'fifth freedom' rights alongside Sri Lanka's Minister of External Affairs, Professor G.L. Peiris in Auckland.

Today's agreement with Sri Lanka is in addition to 14 new or amended air services agreements recently approved by the New Zealand Cabinet.

The New Zealand cabinet has also approved new agreements with Finland, Saudi Arabia, Jamaica, Ethiopia, Togo and Zambia.
