US and EU could strike "open skies" pact.
The US and the European Union (EU) could strike an "open skies" airline pact within the next 12 months.
The European Commission has reportedly secured permission to negotiate a bilateral transatlantic deal from EU member states - who had previously formed their own agreements with Washington.
European officials have backed a transatlantic pact to further airline consolidation within the EU by removing the nationality clause from current airline agreements, reported Reuters.
