I am a great fan of aviation. I love airplanes, flight sim , and making airplane models is my big hobby. However, I'm still not aware of the more politial aspects of aviation which is another reason why I chose to become member of airliners.net.

I would like it if someone could give me an explanation about what 5th freedom rights are...and why 5th ?

I'm sure it may seem evident to many of you but this is one aspect of aviation I still have a lot to discover about!

Regards

BM

Quoting RootsAir (Thread starter):

Because there are 4 other "freedom" before this one !

The "5th freedom" is, for an airline to be allowed to carry some passengers from A to B. Both of A & B not beeing located in the country of origin of this airline.

Example :

Air France operating CDG-EZE-SCL.
AF (French Airline) can sell tickets and carry passengers boarding on its flight at EZE (Argentina) to go to SCL (Chile).
AF has a "Fifth freedom" right between EZE & SCL.

The International Air Transport Agreement of December 1944 defined the five "freedoms of the air" (where the following definitions relate to aircraft registered in state A):

1st freedom - the right to fly over state B without commercial or technical stops.

2nd freedom - the right to land in state B for technical purposes, e.g. refuelling.

3rd freedom - the right to set down traffic from state A in state B.

4th freedom - the right to pick up traffic in state B destined for state A.

5th freedom - the right to pick up traffic in state B destined for state C or put down traffic in state B originating in state C.

In addition, other "freedoms of the air" are often referred to. Although not formally defined, these are commonly understood as follows:

6th freedom - a service taking passengers between states B and C which flies via state A.

7th freedom - a service between state B and state C operated by airline of state A (also called a "free-standing fifth freedom").

8th freedom - cabotage, picking up and setting down traffic within the borders of state B by an aircraft registered in state A.
