Air Services Agreement Case France Vs Usa 1978

In this case, the 1946 agreement contains a fairly significant provision for “coverage” (section VI of the appendix), the text of this provision prompts the reader to expect a thorough settlement of both the “transfer” on the territory of the contracting parties and the “transshipment” on the territory of third countries; but the text does not meet this expectation and is silent on “transshipments” in third countries. It is therefore apparent from the structure of this text that the issue was not neglected by the negotiators, that they recognized its importance and that it was expected that the issue would not have been resolved at the conclusion of the agreement. Having approved, in Article VIII, the principle of close cooperation and regular consultation, the contracting parties probably did not consider this silence to be a definitive situation, but they must have accepted that, pending a new agreement, the general rules in force between them, i.e. the rules of the International Civil Aviation Convention, concluded in Chicago on 7 December 1944 , should remain in force. , in particular the rule that each state has total and exclusive sovereignty over the airspace over its territory (Article 1). Under these provisions, the French government had to give its approval on all aspects of air services on French territory (Article 6). By an arbitral tribunal signed on July 11, 1978, the text of which is set out in paragraph 9 below, the governments of the United States of America and the French Republic submitted to the Court of Arbitration, which met as it did above, the following issues: 3) The parties have entered into interim agreements that maintain a strict balance between the position of the United States Government , according to which pan American World Airways should be modified. : during the arbitration procedure, and the position of the Government of France that it should not change Gauge during this period. To this end, and without prejudice to the position of one of the parties to this arbitration proceeding, Pan American World Airways is authorized, from the date of this compromise until 10 December 1978, to carry out the West Coast Paris service with a lane change in London of 95 flights from London to Paris in each direction. however, provided that no such service can be operated before July 17.

and that there must be no more than six flights per week in each direction. 14 years old. France argues that the 1919 Paris Convention and the 1944 Chicago Convention on International Civil Aviation recognize the sovereignty of states over the airspace over their territory and that bilateral air services agreements that grant air traffic rights must therefore be interpreted in a restrictive manner, since where an agreement does not explicitly allow for changes in the route differential , as is the case under Section VI of the 1946 Annex of the Convention on changes to third countries in the 1946 agreement with respect to changes to third countries – as is the case Section VI of the annex of the 1946 agreement with regard to changes to third countries – as is the case in Section VI of the 1946 Annex changes to third countries – as is the case in Section VI of the 1946 Annex to third country changes – as is the case in Section VI of the Annex The 1946 agreement This is the case in third countries – as is the case in Section VI of the annex of the 1946 agreement with regard to changes in third countries – as is the case for changes made in third countries – as is the case in Section VI of the 1946 Annex to third country amendments – as is the case in Section VI of the 1946 Annex with respect to third-country amendments – as is the case in Section VI of the Annex , changes are considered prohibited.
