Chicago Agreement

Posted on September 14, 2021 by admin-wanda in Uncategorized

The Convention provided for the sovereignty of the airspace over the territory of each State, as well as five freedoms (later extended by the addition of four unofficial freedoms to nine) which governed the freedom of States to conduct air flights (including the carriage of passengers, cargo and mail) over, within and within the airspace of other States. Only the first two of these freedoms (see below) automatically apply to signatory states, the others being subject to national agreements. One of the first aspects addressed in the organizational chapter is the obligation for States to provide SAR services on their territory and on parts of the high seas or areas of undetermined sovereignty, as stipulated in regional air navigation agreements and approved by the ICAO Council. In the event of a general international agreement on the immunities and privileges of international civil servants, the immunities and privileges accorded to the President, the Secretary-General and other staff of the Organization shall be the immunities and privileges accorded under this General International Agreement. If disputes between two or more States Parties concerning the interpretation or application of this Convention and its Annexes cannot be settled by negotiation, the Council shall so decide at the request of a State participating in the disagreement. No member of the Council shall participate in the consideration by the Council of disputes in which he or she participates. Any State Party may, subject to article 85, appeal against the decision of the Council by an ad hoc arbitral tribunal agreed with the other parties to the dispute or to the Permanent International Court of Justice. . . .
