Importance Of Air Services Agreement
Autor: Anna Pilsniak. Kategorie: Bez kategorii .
It is evident that some BASAs have been negotiated or renegotiated without full consideration of the commercial elements necessary for the industry to know the targeted benefits proposed by BASAs and no attention paid to the economic realities under which the country operates. For example, most agreements provide that charges are payable to the Nigerian government if the designated Nigerian air carriers are unable to respond under the agreement. This may be a good way to increase government revenue under the agreement, but it does nothing commercial to the sector. In some cases, agreements have been signed to stop the payment of these fees. On the other hand, Emirates concluded in 2014 an agreement with the South African authorities on additional frequencies between South Africa and Dubai. In addition, government and industry stakeholders need to deal internally with improving air infrastructure and other related areas to strengthen our bargaining power before attempting to renegotiate current agreements or negotiate future agreements. Since 1992, the Department has adopted an „open skies” policy to eliminate government involvement in airline decision-making on routes, capacity and prices in international markets. Open skiing agreements also contain provisions on business opportunities, safety and protection. The United States has negotiated open skies agreements with more than 100 aviation partners. BASAs promote international air links between countries that support and enable passenger transport, freight, trade and tourism.
