Open Skies Vs Bilateral Agreements

In many ways, the United States and Britain face a « back to the future » scenario when working on an « open skies » deal before Brexit. Terms such as Bermuda II are being overturned as governments try to ensure a sustainable service in one of the world`s most lucrative aviation markets. These negotiations are taking place during President Donald Trump`s time, his highly volatile trade policy and the general control of open skies agreements in light of the campaign years of the three major U.S. airlines to counter what they see as unfair subsidies to golf airlines. Bilateral relations between China and the United States, which is also a leading high-value market, are collapsing. Given all the moving aspects of trade policy and the general impotence of the U.S. presidential administration, a high degree of uncertainty prevails in two of the major U.S. markets. After the consolidation of small airlines in the Central American subregion in the early 1990s, other separate but almost identical open skies agreements were concluded with the United States in 1997. By 1995, the U.S.-Canada Air Services Agreement had already entered into force, primarily based on the « open skies » model.

The Office of International Aviation and the U.S. Department of State negotiate bilateral and multilateral air transport agreements with U.S. foreign air partners. Such agreements provide the basis for airlines in the countries concerned to provide international air services to passengers, freight and mail. Through air agreements, the United States is developing a competitive operating environment for U.S. airlines between the U.S. and abroad.

The « open skies » agreements are at the heart of the European Union`s foreign aviation policy. They form the basis for the liberalisation of air transport between the EU and the rest of the world, opening up markets and promoting fair competition. The progress made since the initial roadmap in 2005 depended on both European priorities and the individual strategy of each external partner. This document examines the state of EU relations with four key partners: the United States, Russia, Morocco and Turkey. Azul Linhas Aéreas Brasileiras, LATAM`s rival, has openly announced its intention to create a joint venture with United Airlines, although the US airline has been more cautious in such a move and has a Star Alliance partner in Brazil in Avianca Brasil. United is a small shareholder of Azul with a 5% share. In 1913, a bilateral exchange of notes [1] between Germany and France was signed in the first agreement to provide airship services. ICAO is helping to improve connectivity in different areas through market access, consumer protection, etc.
