The delegations of the European Commission and Mexico signed a horizontal agreement on air transport in Brussels on 15 December 2010. This agreement allows any EU airline to operate flights between Mexico and any EU Member State in which it is established and where there is a bilateral agreement with Mexico and where traffic rights are available. It does not replace bilateral agreements, but adapts them to bring them into line with EU law. This is an important step in the traditional introduction of air transport on the basis of nationality restrictions and complements the EU`s internal aviation market externally. Similarly, any airline from either country is allowed to enter into cooperative trade agreements, such as blocked space, codeshare or leasing agreements, with one or more airlines from another country, or even from third countries, and with ground transport providers from one country. Either Party may at any time notify the other Party of its wish to denounce this Agreement. Such communication shall be addressed simultaneously to the International Civil Aviation Organization. In the event of denunciation by a Party, this Agreement shall expire six months after receipt of the notification of denunciation, unless the denunciation is revoked by agreement between the Parties before the expiry of that period. If the other Party does not confirm receipt, the notification shall be deemed to have been received by the International Civil Aviation Organization fourteen days after its receipt. Miami – The United States and Mexico have opened up their aviation markets to their airlines, a change meant to expand opportunities for travelers. On December 18, 2015, the United States and Mexico (the Parties) signed a new Air Services Agreement which, once in force, will replace the Agreement in force since 1960.
Although the new agreement does not imply the full opening of the aviation sector, the governments of the United States and Mexico, as well as stakeholders in the sector, call it the “open skies agreement” because it liberalizes certain air services between the two countries and contains other characteristics typical of bilateral open skies agreements. In December, the United States and Mexico agreed to open up their air transport markets, promoting effective competition between airlines in both countries. According to Mexico`s transport minister, the new agreement “will preserve the domestic market for local industry while promoting greater and better choice for users.”  – In the absence of a binding definition of these concepts in public aviation law, they must be interpreted in accordance with the provisions and restrictions of the domestic law of each country (e.g. B in the case of Mexico, the Foreign Investment Act). whereas the possibilities for commercial aviation as a means of transport and for the promotion of friendship and goodwill between peoples are multiplying day by day, For more information and information on EU-Mexico relations in the field of air transport and on air transport in the EU in general, see the Atlas of the Sky.
