The Memorandum of Understanding sets on the basis of open skies the legal framework within which both countries enable an unspecified number of national carriers which are assigned from both countries to carry out regular flights on any tracks, in any capacity and in any type of aircraft whether owned or leased by the carriers assigned to all the points.
