Of course, there could be benefits on both sides that would increase and improve aviation activities, but the United States seems to lose a lot and not earn much if it agrees to share ownership of its airlines with insolvent or unprofitable European airlines. The EU is trying to threaten our industry by saying that EU courts have declared our bilateral agreements illegal, which define the various agreements between the US and many foreign EU member states, under EU law. They call for these bilateral agreements to be repealed and replaced by the new EU agreement. You can imagine what that means. It is difficult to understand why our Department of Foreign Affairs seems to want to marginalize our airlines and the people who work there. Is that part of the theme of globalization, which is now going through much of our government? 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. “Price” means any fare, fare or fee (including discounts, frequent flyer plans or other benefits affecting airfare costs) for the transportation of passengers (and their luggage) and/or cargo (excluding duty) or by chartering aircraft charged by airlines, including their agents, as well as the conditions for the availability of such a fare, fare or charge, but without general conditions of transport that apply in bulk to all air transport and are not directly related to the price, fare or charge; The OBJECTIVE is to ensure maximum safety in international air transport and to maintain public confidence in the safety of civil aviation; On all segments or segments of the aforementioned routes, any designated airline may conduct international air traffic without limitation, in order to change the type or number of aircraft used at each point on the line; provided that, with the exception of all-cargo services, in the outbound direction, the transport beyond that point is a continuation of the transport of the territory of the party that designated the airline and, in the incoming direction, the transport to the territory of the party that designated the airline is a continuation of the transport beyond that point. When a general multilateral agreement on air services enters into force for both parties, the provisions of this multilateral agreement prevail in the event of disagreement. In accordance with Article 16 of this agreement, consultations may take place to determine whether and how the agreement should be amended in order to bring it into line with the provisions of the multilateral convention. 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. Through air agreements, the United States is developing a competitive operating environment for U.S. airlines between the U.S. and abroad.

Designated airlines in Canada and designated U.S. airlines have the right, in accordance with the terms of their designation, to operate international air online on the following routes: one of the first ATAs after world war II was the Bermuda Agreement, signed by the United Kingdom and the United States in 1946.
