In response to the “open skies” agreement between the EU and the United States, British Airways has created a subsidiary of the same name, OpenSkies, which for the first time will be directly linked to the United States and continental Europe. Flights from New York to Brussels and Paris are expected to go into service in June 2008. Heathrow Airport is the busiest international airport in the world. Following the official opening of Terminal 5, a state-of-the-art facility worth 4.3 billion pounds, one of the largest construction projects in the Uk, its capacity will be further increased from 27 March 2008. The new terminal is a timely opportunity to take advantage of a recently established agreement on air transport, an agreement described by the adjective composite open skies. In November 2018, the UK reached an individual “Open Sky” agreement with the US, which will succeed the EU agreement after Brexit. [19] “The latest open skies agreement with Australia will bring more initial benefits to consumers than the recent agreement with Europe.” Starting this month, the European Union`s “open skies” agreement will enter into force, meaning that any European-based airline will be able to fly from any EU city to any city within the US and vice versa. America`s open skies policy goes hand in hand with the globalization of airlines. With airlines` unlimited access to our partners` markets and the right to fly all intermediate points and crossing points, open-air agreements offer maximum flexibility for airline alliances. One of the most important aspects of transport and tourism, not only in Europe, but around the world, is the ability to maintain international relations and travel between countries. To ensure open traffic between the United States and Europe, there is what is known as the “open skies” agreement. Open skies agreements refer to air services agreements that liberalize rules for international aviation markets.

Open skies agreements can be bilateral or multilateral. These agreements are beneficial for passengers and all types of freight. On the other hand, national airlines are generally in a bad state in their governments` open skies policy, as they lead to competitive expansion and push inefficient local airlines to reform themselves, adopt more flexible pricing policies and improve the quality of their services. The open skies policy mainly attracts low-cost airlines, also known as low-cost airlines. There are many in the world and their numbers are growing. These companies are known for their relatively cheap airfares and the prices of their services. With increased competition between airlines, this generally results in reduced prices for services and improved quality, which can only appeal to ordinary passengers. An open skies agreement (also known as “open skies”) is an agreement between two nations that actually allows unlimited air travel between them. Although the term “open skies” has been in force for some time, it was introduced into the mainstream in March 2007, when a transatlantic open skies agreement was concluded between the European Union and the United States, allowing any U.S. or European airline to operate flights to and from any European or American site. It is difficult to say how many countries are now using the open skies policy in civil aviation, because countries sometimes use it unilaterally or by mutual agreement between partner states.

And sometimes, after a while, they stop using it. European Union countries apply the open airspace policy to airlines in order to provide EU airlines with equal opportunities in the common aviation market.
