An air services agreement (also known as the ATA or ASA) is a bilateral agreement that allows international commercial air services between signatories. A bilateral air services agreement is reached between two states parties, which liberalizes commercial civil aviation services between these countries. Bilateral air services agreements allow designated airlines in these countries to operate commercial flights covering passenger and cargo transport between the two countries. In addition, they generally regulate the frequency and capacity of air services between countries, pricing and other commercial aspects. This work aims to remove legal uncertainty and ensure the continuity of bilateral ASAs and the development of international air services. The adaptation of existing bilateral agreements to EU legislation also applies to the third countries concerned and to the entire aviation sector, including airlines, users, etc.) It`s important. Therefore, this objective must be achieved effectively and within a reasonable time frame. The ASA covers the basic framework under which airlines enjoy bilateral economic flight rights in two countries. Frequency, designated airlines of the two signatory states, points of origin and intermediate points, traffic rights, type of aircraft and tax issues are generally covered by soft. A horizontal agreement is an international agreement negotiated by the European Commission on behalf of EU member states to bring all existing bilateral air services agreements between EU member states and a given third country into line with EU law. 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. At a press conference in January 2017, the Director General of the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority revealed that Nigeria concluded bilateral air transport agreements with 90 countries in December 2016. It is very important to note, however, that only about 30 of these agreements are active. Two methods have been developed to address the problems identified by the ECJ, i.e. that existing bilateral air services agreements have been amended: most air services are excluded from the United States.
