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). The summaries of the provisions have no formal interpretation of the intentions of the parties to the air transport agreements or the content of those agreements. Abstracts therefore do not replace the actual text of the agreement. One of the first AAS after World War II was the Bermuda Agreement, signed in 1946 by the United Kingdom and the United States. The characteristics of this agreement have become models for the thousands of agreements that were to follow, although in recent decades some of the traditional clauses of these agreements have been amended (or “liberalized”) in accordance with the “open skies” policy of some governments, particularly the United States. [2] An air services agreement (also known as the ATA or ASA) is a bilateral agreement that allows international air services between signatories. Air Services Agreements (ASAs) are formal contracts between countries – Memorandums of Understanding (Memorandum of Understanding) and formal diplomatic notes.

It is not mandatory to have an ASA for the operation of international services, but cases where contract-free services exist are rare. The World Air Services Agreements (WASA) Database is the most comprehensive database of air agreements in the world. In 1913, a bilateral exchange of notes [1] between Germany and France was signed in the first agreement to provide airship services. Since 1992, the Ministry has adopted an “open skies” policy to eliminate government involvement in airline decision-making in international markets through routes, capacity and pricing. Outdoor agreements also contain provisions for business opportunities, security and security. The United States has negotiated “open skies” agreements with more than 100 aviation partners. 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.
