Import-related non-tariff measure, nes

On August 21, 2016 Mexico and the United States put into effect a new air service agreement that will expand opportunities for passenger and cargo carriers. It includes unlimited market access for U.S. and Mexican air carriers, improved intermodal rights, pricing flexibility, and other important commercial rights. The agreement will remove the numerical limitations on the number of airlines that may provide passengers service in all U.S.-Mexico city pairs. Cargo airlines will have expanded opportunities to provide service to new destinations that were not available under the current agreement, and to offer services from the United States to Mexico and beyond Mexico to other countries.
 
The agreement was reached on November 21, 2014, but needed to undergo the approval procedures in both countries.
 
The GTA database contains evidence of unilateral commercial policy state acts. An exception to this rule specific sectors where unilateral action is rare and bilateral action is the norm. Air transport is a sector where bilateral action is the default form of state acts. It is thus included in the GTA database.
