The government on Thursday said that it has decided to open eleven new international sectors under the bilateral air services agreements (ASAs).

In a written reply in the Rajya Sabha on whether the government has decided to open 11 new international sectors under bilateral ASAs, civil aviation minister Ajit Singh replied in the affirmative.

Singh said, "Requests have been received from Indian carriers including Air India for operation on 11 new sectors."

Out of these, approvals for operations have been granted for Summer 2012 for two sectors--Delhi-Guangzhou and Mumbai-Dar-es-Salaam.

"The remaining nine will commence operations in the Winter Schedule of 2012 once approved by the respective foreign authorities," Singh said.
