ICAO World Air Services Agreements (WASA) database is being launched as a new enhanced on-line product accessible to States, the industry, and the general public. The database contains the text of the bilateral agreements and their amendments as well as an analysis identifying the existence or absence of up to 90 distinct provisions covering the scope and type of the agreement, administrative clauses, grant of traffic rights, exercise of rights, and capacity and tariff clauses. The database also includes a summary of the routes exchanged through the agreement.
A built-in search engine allows users to select a list of agreements for particular States which contain or omit similar provisions and review the corresponding text in the agreements. Agreements and/or amendments to existing agreements will be continuously updated as these become available.
ICAO’s WASA is a unique analytical tool for air services negotiations and consultations. It empowers regulators and aviation experts to evaluate developments in the air transport field, to run comparative analyses of air services agreements, and to assess the degree of liberalization between parties and on different routes. WASA database is a homogenous and user-friendly tool that encompasses more than 2,500 summaries of bilateral air services agreements and the full text of over 1,900 agreements and arrangements.
This product is intended for air services negotiators from civil aviation authorities and consultants analysing and researching markets on behalf of regulators. Professionals working in the aviation sector and academics will also benefit from the use of this unique and extensive database.
