Objective of Agreement
To bring into full conformity with the European Community law the provisions of the bilateral air service agreements between Member States of the European Community and the Republic of Croatia which are contrary to it, in order to establish a sound legal basis for air services between the European Community and the Republic of Croatia and to reserve the continuity of such air services.
Article 2 of the Agreement replaces the traditional designation clauses with a Community designation clause, permitting all Community carriers to benefit from the right of establishment.
Articles 4 and 5 of the Agreement address two types of clauses concerning matters of Community competence. Article 4 deals with the taxation of aviation fuel.
Article 5 (Pricing) resolves conflicts between the existing bilateral air services agreements and Council Regulation 2409/92 on fares and rates for air services which prohibits third country carriers from being price leaders on air services for carriage wholly within the Community.
The agreement provides for its provisional application.
