India Uae Bilateral Air Services Agreement

By Zach Arnold | December 10, 2020

India had initially sought to change the measurement instrument regime in bilateral negotiations in 2008, on the grounds that the 5th freedoms available to Indian airlines outside Dubai could only be used for commercial purposes if they could set up hub operations in the Emirate. At the time, the Dubai authorities agreed in principle, but stated that due to infrastructure constraints at Dubai Airport, these rights would only be available through Al Maktoum International Airport (AMIA) at the time of opening. With regard to the change in the right of lane-off agreed in the last negotiations, it is not yet clear whether the offer applies to Dubai Airport or AMIA. Air India, Jet and IndiGo probably need more than 10,000 to 12,000 seats a week. Air India and Air India Express do not have the narrow capacity to support the development of international regional services; Jet Airways is now focused on Abu Dhabi, not Dubai; and IndiGo has modest plans for Dubai. Discussions on renegotiating the bilateral air services agreement are expected to begin in two or three months. Indian airlines currently use some 43,000 of the 55,000 weekly seat permits available to them under the India-Dubai bilateral part. Prior to the recent negotiations, Indian airlines were invited to present their estimated needs for the next 2 to 3 years. The Ambassador informed the Minister of the status of a bilateral air transport agreement and reiterated a request from the UAE civil aviation authorities for the urgent need to begin negotiations for the revision of the existing agreement, as the pact has reached full capacity. Section I The airline designated by the Government of the Republic of Indonesia has the right to operate air services in both directions on the line indicated in this section and to land on this point for transport purposes: the United Arab Emirates Ambassador to India, Ahmed Al Banna, said at a press conference that the two countries had cooperated robustly and had signed an agreement to that effect.

These ground operations include services that facilitate the preparation and completion of aircraft flights, including ticketing, check-in, baggage sorting, refueling and de-icing. Article 12 Each contracting party may, at any time, denounce the other contracting party if it wishes to denounce this agreement. This notification is also forwarded to the International Civil Aviation Organization. If such a notification is issued, this agreement expires twelve (12) months after the other party receives the notification, unless the notice period is revoked by mutual agreement before the expiry of that period. In the absence of an acknowledgement by the other party, the notification is deemed to be fourteen (14) days after receiving the notification by the International Civil Aviation Organization. The UAE is keen to have an open sky agreement with India, its Ambassador to India A.R. Albanna said on Wednesday. Indeed, the best way to serve India`s interests is to open up more to foreign airlines, not less, thereby reducing the strategic risk of dependence on an internal market.
