Bermuda I Agreement

(e) where U.S. aviation authorities are legally entitled to set fair and economic tariffs for the transportation of persons and goods by air through international services and to suspend the proposed tariff in a manner comparable to the comparability of the Civil Aeronautics Board, with respect to these tariffs for the transportation of persons and goods by air within the United States. Subsequently, each party exercises its powers in such a way that the rates or rates proposed by one of its air carriers for services originating in the territory of one of the contracting parties take effect at one or more locations in the territory of the other party if, depending on the judgment of the authorities of the contracting party, including the air carriers or air carriers propose that rate or these fees. , this rate is unfair or uneconomic. If, upon receipt of the notification referred to in point (c), one of the parties is not satisfied with the new tariff proposed by the airline or the other contracting party, it informs the contracting party before the expiry of the first fortnight of the aforementioned thirty days and the parties strive to reach agreement on the appropriate rate. When such an agreement is reached, each party exercises its legal powers for the purposes of the effect of this agreement. In the absence of agreement at the end of the deadline (c), the proposed rate may, unless the authorities of the country of the air carrier concerned consider it appropriate to suspend its operation, come into force on an interim basis pending a settlement of a dispute in accordance with the procedure provided for in point g). The Bermuda Agreement (a formal agreement between the United Kingdom government and the United States government on air services between their respective territories), concluded in 1946 by U.S. and British negotiators in Bermuda, was an early bilateral agreement on air services. It has set a precedent for the signing of about 3,000 other such agreements between countries. The agreement was replaced by the Bermuda II Agreement, signed in 1977 and entered into force in 1978. The tariffs to be applied to the air carriers of each party operating between points within the United Kingdom and the Territory of the United States “are subject to the agreement of the contracting parties within their respective constitutional powers and obligations.” By signing such an agreement, the United States has taken an important step forward in stratified international diplomatic and legal transportation.
