Europe Open Skies Agreement

The initial agreement was signed on April 30, 2007 in Washington, D.C. The agreement entered into force on March 30, 2008. The second phase was signed in June 2010 and has been applied on an interim basis until all signatories are ratified. [2] Norway and Iceland joined the agreement in 2011. The contract disappointed European airlines because they felt chosen for US airlines: while US airlines are allowed to operate flights within the EU (when it is an all-cargo flight or a passenger flight, if this is the second leg of a flight launched in the United States), European airlines are not allowed to fly intra-U.S. flights, nor can they acquire a controlling interest in the an American operator. [3] The agreement replaced and replaced the old open skies agreements between the United States and some European countries. In November 2018, the UK reached an individual “Open Sky” agreement with the US, which will succeed the EU agreement after Brexit. [19] The agreement also strengthens cooperation between the two sides in the following areas. Operational and regulatory factors prevent the opening of international air traffic.

From a legal point of view, the “open skies” judgments meant that EU Member States could no longer act in isolation when negotiating international air agreements. Negotiations on international air services are now conducted in close cooperation and coordination between the European Commission and EU Member States. The “open skies” agreement between the EU and the United States is an agreement on air services between the European Union (EU) and the United States. The agreement allows any Airline of the European Union and any airline of the United States to fly between every point of the European Union and any point of the United States. EU and US airlines are allowed to travel to another country after their first stop (fifth freedom). Since the EU is not considered a single zone within the meaning of the agreement, this in practice means that US airlines can fly between two points in the EU as long as this flight is the continuation of a flight that started in the US (. B for example, New York – London – Berlin). EU airlines can also fly between the US and third countries that are part of the common European airspace, such as Switzerland.

EU and US airlines can fly all-cargo under the 7th Freedom Rights, which means that all-cargo flights by US airlines can be operated by an EU country to any other EU country and all-cargo flights can be operated by EU airlines between the US and any other country. [1] Norway and Iceland joined the agreement from 2011 and their airlines enjoy the same rights as THE EU airlines. [2] The so-called “open skies” judgments of the European Court of Justice (ECJ) of 5 November 2002 mark the beginning of an EU foreign policy in the field of aviation.
