Aviation Air Service Agreements

Horizontal negotiation method: changes with 41 countries and a regional organisation of 8 Member States, representing 670 other bilateral agreements. The latter has the advantages of simplicity, cost efficiency and time. On 1 May 2001, the United States and Brunei, Chile, New Zealand and Singapore signed a multilateral open-air agreement, known as the Multilateral Agreement on the Liberalization of International Air Transport (MALIAT). The department continues to invite our aviation partners to join MALIAT in order to reach open skis with several partners. Since the use of aircraft within the borders of a single country makes no economic sense, it has become necessary for countries to find a way to expand their areas of exploitation. This has led to several agreements between two countries in the form of bilateral air services agreements. One of the first air agreements after World War II was the Bermuda Agreement. This agreement was signed in 1946 by the United States of America and the United Kingdom. The characteristics of the Bermuda Agreement became models for the many such agreements that were to follow (Kasper 1988)3. Therefore, information on Sweden`s bilateral agreements with the Community Member States, Norway, Iceland and Switzerland is not published on this website. On the other hand, information on the EU agreements that bind Sweden is published. Most air services are excluded from U.S. trade agreements.

When air services are included, the scope is very limited. In these cases, the Office of International Aviation cooperates with the Office of the United States Trade Representative and the State Department to ensure that these provisions are consistent with U.S. aviation policy. In the General Service Tariff Agreement (GATS), the Air Services Annex explicitly limits air service coverage to aircraft repair and maintenance operations, computerized reservation systems, and the sale and marketing of air transport. Under our bilateral and multilateral free trade agreements (FTAs), air service coverage is limited to aircraft repair and maintenance services and specialized air services.

In addition, certain aspects dealt with in the bilateral Air Services Agreements (ASA) fall under the exclusive competence of the EU and are therefore not self-negotiable by EU Member States. Commercial transfers and transport can only be made if the states involved in the operations allow it. In particular, in order to provide a stable legal basis for international air services, Member States have concluded air/air agreements. Normally, these agreements are concluded between two contracting states – bilateral agreements. In 1944, when World War II was in the final stages, 54 countries came to the conference in Chicago, USA, to talk about the future of international aviation.

The conference resulted in the signing of the International Civil Aviation Convention, commonly known as the Chicago Convention. The Chicago Convention defined the rules governing international air travel activity. In addition, the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), the United Nations organization responsible for the planning and development of international air traffic (ICAO, 2011)1. The bilateral system is based on the Chicago Convention and related multilateral treaties. The Chicago Convention was signed in December 1944 and has governed international air services ever since. the convention also contains a number of annexes covering issues such as aviation safety, safety monitoring, seaworthiness, navigation, environmental protection and facilities (acceleration and departure at airports). A bilateral air services agreement is reached between two states parties, which liberalizes commercial civil aviation services between these countries.
