Summary of Treaty


GENERAL DATA
Official Title Agreement between the European Community and the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan on certain aspects of air services
Type of Agreement Bilateral
Place of Signature Brussels
Date of Signature 25/02/2008
Date of Entry Into Force 12/06/2015
Objective of Agreement To replace certain provisions in existing bilateral agreements between EU Member States and the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan with a Community agreement recognising that consistency between European Community law and provisions of bilateral air service agreements between Member States of the European Community and the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan will provide a sound legal basis for air services between the European Community and the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan and preserve the continuity of such air services.
Remarks International aviation relations between Member States and third countries have traditionally been governed by bilateral air services agreements between Member States and third countries, their Annexes and other related bilateral or multilateral arrangements. Following the judgements of the Court of Justice of the European Communities in cases C- 466/98, C-467/98, C-468/98, C-471/98, C-472/98, C-475/98 and C-476/98 of 5 November 2002 ("Open skies" judgements), the Community has exclusive competence with respect to various aspects of external aviation. The Court of Justice also clarified the right of Community air carriers to benefit from the right of establishment within the Community, including the right to non-discriminatory market access. In accordance with the mechanisms and directives in the Annex to the Council decision authorising the Commission to open negotiations with third countries on the replacement of certain provisions in existing bilateral agreements with a Community agreement, the Commission has negotiated an agreement with the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan that replaces certain provisions in the existing bilateral air services agreements between Member States and Jordan. 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.
