Description / Abstract:


This manual is designed to be “user friendly” and to serve three distinct functions. First, it can be used as a dictionary of international air transport terms: each term listed in the Index has a definition or an explanation on the page indicated. On that page, the term is highlighted in bold italic and its definition or explanation is presented in italics.

Second, it can be used as an encyclopedia. Each broad regulatory topic has its own chapter or section of a chapter in the manual, written to compress essential facts into one or a few pages. The Table of Contents assists the reader to determine the location of material on broader topics (e.g. the bilateral regulatory process, traffic rights, etc., each of which may involve many related definitions and explanations).

Third, this manual as a whole can be useful as a textbook for academic or other educational and training purposes.

The scope of the manual is limited to the economic aspects of international air transport regulation as distinguished from the technical aspects thereof such as those involving navigation, safety and security. Nevertheless, these other areas of regulation are not totally separable from economic regulation and can affect such matters as airline licensing, airport access and the structure of agreed routes. Although air transport regulators sometimes also regulate commercial non-transport operations, such as aerial crop dusting and surveying, as well as non-commercial flying, such as overflight and landing by private, military and State aircraft, both topics are outside the scope of this manual. The term “aviation” is often used incorrectly in lieu of the term “air transport”. While air transport is more specific, referring to those aspects related to the carriage by air (usually commercial air transport), aviation is generic and includes far more topics such as military, state and private flying, aircraft manufacturing, air navigation, noncommercial transport and specialty air services.
