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!

Quoting RootsAir (Thread starter): I would like it if someone could give me an explanation about what 5th freedom rights are...and why 5th ?
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.
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.
