AGREEMENT
between the European Community and the United Arab Emirates on certain aspects of air services
THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITY
of the one part, and
THE UNITED ARAB EMIRATES
of the other part
(hereinafter referred to as the Contracting Parties)
NOTING that the European Court of Justice has found that certain provisions of bilateral agreements entered into by several Member States with third countries are incompatible with European Community law,
NOTING that a number of bilateral air services agreements have been concluded between several Member States of the European Community and the United Arab Emirates containing similar provisions and that there is an obligation on Member States to take all appropriate steps to eliminate incompatibilities between such agreements and the Treaty establishing the European Community,
NOTING that the European Community has exclusive competence with respect to several aspects that may be included in bilateral air services agreements between Member States of the European Community and third countries,
NOTING that under European Community law Community air carriers established in a Member State have the right to non-discriminatory access to agreed air routes between the Member States of the European Community and third countries,
HAVING REGARD to the agreements between the European Community and certain third countries providing for the possibility for the nationals of such third countries to acquire ownership in air carriers licensed in accordance with European Community law,
RECOGNISING that consistency between European Community law and provisions of bilateral air services agreements between Member States of the European Community and the United Arab Emirates will provide a sound legal basis for air services between the European Community and the United Arab Emirates and preserve the continuity and development of such air services,
NOTING that under European Community law air carriers may not, in principle, conclude agreements which may affect trade between Member States of the European Community and which have as their object or effect the prevention, restriction or distortion of competition,
RECOGNISING that provisions in bilateral air services agreements concluded between Member States of the European Community and the United Arab Emirates which (i) require or favour the adoption of agreements between undertakings, decisions by associations of undertakings or concerted practices that prevent, distort or restrict competition between air carriers on the relevant routes; or (ii) reinforce the effects of any such agreement, decision or concerted practice; or (iii) delegate to air carriers or other private economic operators the responsibility for taking measures that prevent, distort or restrict competition between air carriers on the relevant routes may render ineffective the competition rules applicable to undertakings,
NOTING that it is not a purpose of the European Community, as part of this Agreement, to increase the total volume of air traffic between the European Community and the United Arab Emirates, to affect the balance between Community air carriers and air carriers of the United Arab Emirates, or to prevail over the interpretation of the provisions of existing bilateral air services agreements concerning traffic rights,
HAVE AGREED AS FOLLOWS:
Article 1
General provisions
1.   For the purposes of this Agreement, ‘Member States’ shall mean Member States of the European Community, ‘Contracting Party’ shall mean a contracting Party to this Agreement; ‘Party’ shall mean the party to the relevant bilateral air services agreement.
2.   References in each of the agreements listed in Annex I to nationals of the Member State that is a party to that agreement shall be understood as referring to nationals of the Member States of the European Community.
3.   References in each of the agreements listed in Annex I to air carriers or airlines of the Member State that is a party to that agreement shall be understood as referring to air carriers or airlines designated by that Member State.
Article 2
Designation
1.   The provisions in paragraphs 2 and 3 of this Article shall supersede the corresponding provisions in the articles listed in Annex II(a) and (b) respectively, in relation to the designation of an air carrier by the Party concerned, its authorisations and permissions granted by the other Party, and the refusal, revocation, suspension or limitation of the authorisations or permissions of the air carrier, respectively.
2.   On receipt of such a designation, and of applications from the designated air carrier(s), in the form and manner prescribed for operating authorisations and technical permissions, each Party shall grant the appropriate authorisations and permissions with minimum procedural delay, provided that:

(a)

in the case of an air carrier designated by a Member State:
(i)

the air carrier is established in the territory of the designating Member State under the Treaty establishing the European Community and has a valid Operating Licence granted by a Member State in accordance with European Community law; and

(ii)

effective regulatory control of the air carrier is exercised and maintained by the Member State responsible for issuing its Air Operator’s Certificate and the relevant aeronautical authority is clearly identified in the designation; and

(iii)

the air carrier has its principal place of business in the territory of the Member State from which it has received the valid Operating Licence; and

(iv)

the air carrier is owned, directly or through majority ownership, and is effectively controlled by Member States and/or nationals of Member States, and/or by other states listed in Annex III and/or nationals of such other states;

(b)

in the case of an air carrier designated by the United Arab Emirates:
(i)

the air carrier is established in the territory of the United Arab Emirates and is licensed in accordance with the applicable law of the United Arab Emirates; and

(ii)

the United Arab Emirates have and maintain effective regulatory control of the air carrier.
3.   Either Party may refuse, revoke, suspend or limit the operating authorisations or technical permissions of an air carrier designated by the other Party where:

(a)

in the case of an air carrier designated by a Member State:
(i)

the air carrier is not established in the territory of the designating Member State under the Treaty establishing the European Community or does not have a valid Operating Licence granted by a Member State in accordance with European Community law; or

(ii)

effective regulatory control of the air carrier is not exercised or not maintained by the Member State responsible for issuing its Air Operator’s Certificate, or the relevant aeronautical authority is not clearly identified in the designation; or

(iii)

the air carrier does not have its principal place of business in the territory of the Member State from which it has received its Operating Licence; or

(iv)

the air carrier is not owned, directly or through majority ownership, or is not effectively controlled by Member States and/or nationals of Member States, and/or by other states listed in Annex III and/or nationals of such other states; or

(v)

the air carrier holds an Air Operator’s Certificate issued by another Member State and it can be demonstrated that by exercising traffic rights under this Agreement on a route that includes a point in that other Member State, including the operation of a service which is marketed as or otherwise constitutes a through service, it would in effect be circumventing restrictions on traffic rights imposed by a bilateral air services agreement between the United Arab Emirates and that other Member State; or

(vi)

the air carrier holds an Air Operator’s Certificate issued by a Member State and there is no bilateral air services agreement between the United Arab Emirates and that Member State, and it can be demonstrated that the necessary traffic rights to conduct the proposed operation are not reciprocally available to the air carrier(s) designated by the United Arab Emirates;

(b)

in the case of an air carrier designated by the United Arab Emirates:
(i)

the air carrier is not established in the territory of the United Arab Emirates or is not licensed in accordance with the applicable law of the United Arab Emirates; or

(ii)

the United Arab Emirates do not have or do not maintain effective regulatory control of the air carrier; or

(iii)

the air carrier is majority owned and controlled by nationals of a state other than the United Arab Emirates and it can be demonstrated that by exercising traffic rights under this Agreement on a route that includes a point in that other state, including the operation of a service which is marketed as or otherwise constitutes a through service, it would in effect be circumventing restrictions on traffic rights imposed by a bilateral air services agreement between a Member State and that other state; or

(iv)

the air carrier is majority owned and controlled by nationals of a state other than the United Arab Emirates and there is no bilateral air services agreement between a Member State and that other state, and it can be demonstrated that the necessary traffic rights to conduct the proposed operation are not reciprocally available to the air carrier(s) designated by the Member State concerned.
In exercising its right under this paragraph, and without prejudice to its rights under paragraph 3(a)(v) and (vi) of this Article, the United Arab Emirates shall not discriminate between Community air carriers on the grounds of nationality.
Article 3
Safety
1.   The provisions in paragraph 2 of this Article shall complement the corresponding provisions in the articles listed in Annex II(c).
2.   Where a Member State has designated an air carrier whose regulatory control is exercised and maintained by another Member State, the rights of the United Arab Emirates under the safety provisions of the agreement between the Member State that has designated the air carrier and the United Arab Emirates shall apply equally in respect of the adoption, exercise or maintenance of safety standards by that other Member State and in respect of the operating authorisation of that air carrier.
Article 4
Taxation of aviation fuel
1.   The provisions in paragraph 2 of this Article shall complement the corresponding provisions in the articles listed in Annex II(d).
2.   Notwithstanding any other provision to the contrary, nothing in each of the agreements listed in Annex II(d) shall prevent a Member State from imposing, on a non-discriminatory basis, taxes, levies, duties, fees or charges on fuel supplied in its territory for use in an aircraft of a designated air carrier of the United Arab Emirates that operates between a point in the territory of that Member State and another point in the territory of that Member State or in the territory of another Member State. In such case, the United Arab Emirates would have a similar right to reciprocate without discrimination the imposition of similar taxes, levies, duties, fees or charges on fuel supplied in their territory.
Article 5
Tariffs for carriage within the European Community
1.   The provisions in paragraph 2 of this Article shall complement the corresponding provisions in the articles listed in Annex II(e).
2.   The tariffs to be charged by the air carrier(s) designated by the United Arab Emirates under an agreement listed in Annex I containing a provision listed in Annex II(e) for carriage wholly within the European Community shall be subject to European Community law.
3.   Notwithstanding the provisions in paragraph 2, the air carrier(s) designated by the United Arab Emirates shall be allowed to match existing prices charged by other airlines for carriage wholly within the European Community.
Article 6
Compatibility with competition rules
