7. Pristojni organi obeh pogodbenic si bodo prizadevali, da bi zagotovili, da bodo določeni prevozniki spoštovali dogovorjene tarife, ki bodo deponirane pri njih in da noben letalski prevoznik ne bo na noben način neposredno ali posredno protizakonito zmanjševal nobenega deleža teh tarif.
14. člen
Predložitev redov letenja
1. Določeni prevoznik ene pogodbenice mora predložiti svoje rede letenja v potrditev pristojnim organom druge pogodbenice najmanj trideset dni preden se začne dogovorjeni promet. Isto velja za vsako poznejšo spremembo.

17. člen
Reševanje sporov
1. Vse spore, ki bi nastali v zvezi s tem sporazumom in jih pogodbenici ne moreta rešiti s pogajanji ali po diplomatski poti, bosta na zahtevo vsake pogodbenice predložili v odločitev arbitražnemu razsodišču.
2. Vsaka pogodbenica določi v ta namen enega razsodnika, ta dva pa določita predsednika, ki mora biti državljan tretje države. Če v dveh mesecih od dneva, ko je ena pogodbenica določila svojega razsodnika, tega ne stori tudi druga pogodbenica, ali če se v enem mesecu, potem ko je imenovan tudi drugi razsodnik, oba razsodnika ne dogovorita glede predsednika, lahko katerakoli pogodbenica zahteva od predsednika sveta Mednarodne organizacije civilnega letalstva, da opravi potrebna imenovanja.
3. Arbitražno razsodišče določi svoj poslovnik. Vsaka pogodbenica plača stroške svojega razsodnika, preostale stroške pa krijeta pogodbenici enako.
4. Pogodbenici bosta spoštovali vsako odločitev, ki bo sprejeta na podlagi tega člena.
