Air Services Agreements between Member States and Third Countries Two methods have been developed to resolve the problems identified by the Court of Justice, i.e. to amend existing bilateral air services agreements: air services agreements generally consist of a treaty-level air transport agreement, supplemented by agreements between aviation authorities, such as. B only Memorandums of Understanding and/or exchanges of letters. It is the australian government`s practice to publish all treaty-level agreements. However, rules with a lower status than the contract are generally not published, as they are traditionally considered confidential between aviation authorities. The list of airlines and services operating under the Australian Air Transport Agreements and Agreements is available on the International Airlines Timetable Summary page. Note: EU external aviation policy: why does the EU want to change air agreements between its member states and partner countries? Separate bilateral negotiations method: revision of amendments with 73 partner countries representing 340 bilateral agreements. “I think it`s a great service, keep up the good work.” Regulation (EC) 847/2004 relating to the negotiation and implementation of air services agreements between Member States and third countries The Chicago Convention stipulates that no international air service per line may be operated on or on the territory of a contracting state without their authorisation.

It is very important to note, however, that only about 30 of these agreements are active. 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.
Airlines operating international air services do so under the capacity requirements that are included in air transportation regimes.
