PROMETNE PRAVICE
1. Vsaka pogodbenica podeli določenim prevoznikom druge pogodbenice tele pravice pri opravljanju rednega mednarodnega zračnega prometa in posebnega prometa:
a) pravico do preleta svojega ozemlja brez pristanka;
b) pravico do pristanka na tem ozemlju v nekomercialne namene.
2. Vsaka pogodbenica podeli določenim prevoznikom druge pogodbenice pri opravljanju rednega mednarodnega zračnega prometa na progah, določenih v zadevnem oddelku seznama prog v prilogi, pravice, določene v tem sporazumu. Ta promet in te proge so v nadaljevanju imenovani “dogovorjeni promet” in “določene proge”. Pri opravljanju dogovorjenega prometa na določeni progi bodo prevozniki, ki jih je določila vsaka pogodbenica, imeli poleg pravic, naštetih v odstavku (1) tega člena in v skladu z določbami tega sporazuma, še pravico do pristanka na ozemlju druge pogodbenice na točkah, ki so za to progo določene v pregledu prog tega sporazuma, z namenom vkrcanja in izkrcanja potnikov, prtljage ter tovora, vključno s pošto.
3. Nobeno določilo 2. odstavka tega člena ne daje določenemu prevozniku ene pogodbenice pravice, da na ozemlju druge pogodbenice za plačilo ali najemnino vkrca potnike, prtljago, tovor ali pošto, ki so namenjeni v kraj na ozemlju druge pogodbenice.
4. Če določeni prevoznik ene pogodbenice zaradi oboroženih spopadov, političnih nemirov ali dogodkov ali posebnih ali neobičajnih okoliščin ne more opravljati prometa po običajni progi, si bo druga pogodbenica prizadevala omogočiti nadaljevanje prometa z ustreznimi spremembami proge, vključno s podelitvijo pravic za čas, potreben za normalno opravljanje prometa. Določila tega odstavka se bodo uporabljala brez razlikovanja med določenimi prevozniki pogodbenic.
3. člen
DOLOČITEV PREVOZNIKOV
1. Vsaka pogodbenica ima pravico, da za opravljanje dogovorjenega prometa na določenih progah določi enega ali več prevoznikov. Pristojni organ pogodbenice, ki bo določila prevoznika, bo to pisno sporočil pristojnemu organu druge pogodbenice.
2. Po prejemu takega sporočila bo pristojni organ pogodbenice določenim prevoznikom druge pogodbenice v skladu z določili 3. in 4. odstavka tega člena brez odlašanja izdal potrebno dovoljenje za opravljanje prometa.
3. Pristojni organ ene pogodbenice lahko od določenih prevoznikov druge pogodbenice zahteva, naj dokažejo, da izpolnjujejo pogoje, določene v zakonih in predpisih, ki jih pristojni organ v skladu s konvencijo normalno in razumno uporablja pri opravljanju mednarodnega zračnega prometa.
4. Vsaka pogodbenica ima pravico odkloniti izdajo dovoljenja za opravljanje prometa iz 2. odstavka tega člena ali naložiti pogoje, ki so po njenem mnenju potrebni, da jih določeni prevoznik izpolnjuje pri uresničevanju pravic iz 2. člena tega sporazuma, če nima zadostnih dokazov, da sta pretežno lastništvo in dejanski nadzor nad prevoznikom, ki ga je druga pogodbenica določila, dejansko v rokah te pogodbenice ali njenih državljanov.
5. Ko je prevoznik tako določen in dobi dovoljenje, sme kadarkoli začeti opravljati dogovorjeni promet pod pogojem, da so bili odobreni redi letenja in da v zvezi s tem prometom veljajo tarife, kot je določeno v 14. in 16. členu tega sporazuma.
6. Vsaka pogodbenica ima pravico, da s pisnim sporočilom umakne določitev kateregakoli od svojih prevoznikov in ga nadomesti z določitvijo drugega prevoznika.
4. člen
PREKLIC, ZAČASNA USTAVITEV IN OMEJITEV PRAVIC
1. Pristojni organ vsake pogodbenice bo imel pravico, da prekliče dovoljenje za opravljanje prometa ali da začasno ustavi uresničevanje pravic iz 2. člena tega sporazuma ali da prevozniku, ki ga je določila druga pogodbenica, določi take pogoje, kot se ji za uresničevanje teh pravici zdi potrebno, če:
a) nima zadostnih dokazov, da sta pretežno lastništvo in dejanski nadzor nad tem prevoznikom v rokah pogodbenice, ki je prevoznika določila, ali njenih državljanov ali
b) prevoznik ne spoštuje zakonov in predpisov pogodbenice, ki je te pravice dala, ali
c) prevoznik ne opravlja dogovorjenega prometa pod pogoji, določenimi v tem sporazumu.
2. Razen če so takojšen preklic, začasna ustavitev pravic ali določitev pogojev iz 1. odstavka tega člena nujni za preprečitev nadaljnje kršitve zakonov ali predpisov, se bo ta pravica uporabila šele po posvetovanju z drugo pogodbenico. Posvetovanja se bodo začela v tridesetih (30) dneh od dneva predloga za njihov začetek, če ni dogovorjeno drugače.

7. člen
LETALIŠKE TAKSE
Takse za uporabo letališč in navigacijskih naprav ter storitev, ki jih opravlja ena pogodbenica za določene prevoznike druge pogodbenice, ne bodo višje kot tiste, ki jih plačujejo domači zrakoplovi, ko opravljajo podoben mednarodni redni zračni promet. Take takse morajo biti upravičene in razumne in morajo temeljiti na poštenih ekonomskih načelih.
8. člen
POTNIKI IN TOVOR V DIREKTNEM TRANZITU
Za potnike, prtljago in tovor v direktnem tranzitu čez ozemlje ene od pogodbenic, ki ne zapustijo območja letališča, določenega v ta namen, bo razen glede varnostnih ukrepov proti nasilju in zračnemu piratstvu veljal le enostaven nadzor.

2. Vsaka pogodbenica pa si pridržuje pravico, da za preletanje nad svojim ozemljem ne prizna spričeval o sposobnosti in dovoljenj, ki jih je druga pogodbenica izdala njenim državljanom.
10. člen
VARNOST
1. V skladu s svojimi pravicami in obveznostmi po mednarodnem pravu pogodbenici ponovno potrjujeta, da je medsebojna obveznost varovanja civilnega zračnega prometa pred nezakonitimi dejanji sestavni del tega sporazuma. Brez omejevanja svojih pravic in obveznosti po mednarodnem pravu bosta pogodbenici še posebej ravnali v skladu z določili Konvencije o kaznivih dejanjih in določenih drugih dejanjih, storjenih na letalih, podpisane v Tokiu 14. septembra 1963, Konvencije o zatiranju nezakonite ugrabitve zrakoplovov, podpisane v Haagu 16. decembra 1970 in Konvencije o zatiranju nezakonitih dejanj zoper varnost civilnega letalstva, podpisane v Montrealu 23. septembra 1971, in njenega dopolnilnega Protokola o zatiranju nezakonitih nasilnih dejanj na letališčih za mednarodno civilno zrakoplovstvo, podpisanega v Montrealu 24. februarja 1988, ko bo postal obvezujoč za obe pogodbenici.
2. Pogodbenici si bosta na zahtevo medsebojno pomagali, da bi preprečili nezakonite ugrabitve civilnih zrakoplovov in druga nezakonita dejanja proti varnosti takih zrakoplovov, njihovih potnikov in posadk, letališč in navigacijskih naprav ter vsako drugo ogrožanje varnosti civilne zračne plovbe.
3. Pogodbenici bosta v medsebojnih odnosih ravnali v skladu z določili Mednarodne organizacije civilnega letalstva o varnosti civilne zračne plovbe, ki so opredeljena v prilogah konvencije, v tisti meri, v kateri ta določila veljajo za pogodbenici. Pogodbenici bosta zahtevali od letalskih družb, ki so vpisane v njunem registru ali ki opravlja- jo pretežni del svojih dejavnosti ali imajo sedež na nju- nem ozemlju, ter od letaliških podjetij na svojem ozemlju, da delujejo v skladu s takimi letalskimi varnostnimi pred- pisi.
4. Pogodbenici se strinjata, da morajo navedene letalske družbe spoštovati letalske varnostne predpise, navedene v 3. odstavku tega člena, ki jih zahteva druga pogodbenica za vstop, odhod oziroma dokler so letala na ozemlju te druge pogodbenice. Vsaka pogodbenica zagotavlja, da se bodo na njenem ozemlju učinkovito izvajali primerni ukrepi za zavarovanje letal in za pregled potnikov, posadke, ročne prtljage, prtljage, tovora in zalog na letalu pred in med vkrcavanjem ali natovarjanjem. Pogodbenici bosta z naklonjenostjo obravnavali vsako zahtevo druge pogodbenice za uvedbo razumnih varnostnih ukrepov zaradi neposredne grožnje.
5. Ob nezakoniti ugrabitvi ali grožnji z ugrabitvijo civilnega zrakoplova oziroma drugih nezakonitih dejanjih proti varnosti takšnih zrakoplovov, njihovih potnikov in posadke, letališč ali navigacijskih naprav bosta pogodbenici pomagali druga drugi, s tem da bosta poskrbeli za komunikacije in druge ustrezne ukrepe, da bi se čim hitreje in varno končal tak incident ali grožnja.
11. člen
PREDSTAVNIŠTVA IN KOMERCIALNE DEJAVNOSTI
1. Določeni prevozniki pogodbenic bodo imeli pravico, da:
a) na ozemlju druge pogodbenice ustanovijo urade za predstavitev zračnega prevoza in prodajo letalskih vozovnic kot tudi druge objekte, potrebne za zagotavljanje zračnega prevoza;
b) na ozemlje druge pogodbenice pripeljejo in imajo tam v skladu z njenimi zakoni in predpisi o vstopu, bivanju in zaposlovanju vodilno, prodajno, tehnično, operativno in drugo strokovno osebje, ki je potrebno v zvezi z zagotavljanjem zračnega prevoza, in

3. Za komercialne dejavnosti določenih prevoznikov obeh pogodbenic se bodo uporabljala ista načela. Pristojne oblasti obeh pogodbenic bodo storile vse potrebno, da bodo lahko predstavništva določenih prevoznikov druge pogodbenice redno opravljala svojo dejavnost.
12. člen
KONVERZIJA IN TRANSFER DOHODKA

2. Pri opravljanju dogovorjenega prometa bodo določeni prevozniki obeh pogodbenic upoštevali interese določenih prevoznikov druge pogodbenice, da ne bi neupravičeno ogrožali prometa, ki ga slednji opravljajo na celoti ali na delu istih prog.
3. Dogovorjeni promet, ki ga opravljajo določeni prevozniki pogodbenic, bo v tesni povezavi z javnimi potrebami po prevozu na določenih progah. Njegov glavni cilj bo ob primerni zasedenosti zagotavljati zmogljivosti, ki bodo ustrezale tekočim in razumno predvidljivim zahtevam po tem prometu, vključno s sezonskimi spremembami prevoza potnikov, prtljage, tovora in pošte, tako vkrcanih kot izkrcanih v krajih na dogovorjenih progah na ozemlju pogodbenice, ki je določila prevoznike.
4. Pogoji za prevoz potnikov, prtljage, tovora in pošte glede vkrcavanja kot izkrcavanja v krajih na določenih progah na ozemljih tretjih držav, ki niso določile prevoznikov, bodo določeni tako, da bo zmogljivost povezana s:
a) potrebami po prometu z in na ozemlje pogodbenice, ki je določila prevoznike;
b) potrebami po prometu na območju, čez katero poteka dogovorjeni promet, ob upoštevanju prometa, ki ga opravljajo prevozniki držav na tem območju; in
c) potrebami celotne operacije prevoznika.
5. Določeni prevozniki si bodo prizadevali, da se dogovorijo o skupnih zmogljivostih, ki se bodo zagotavljale v takem prometu.

7. Skupno zmogljivost, ki jo bodo v dogovorjenem prometu zagotavljali določeni prevozniki pogodbenic, bodo odobrili pristojni organi pogodbenic pred začetkom opravljanja prometa in potem v skladu s predvidenimi prometnimi zahtevami. Taka odobritev bo upoštevala pisni predlog določenih prevoznikov o zmogljivosti.
8. Če pristojni organ ene pogodbenice ne odobri predložene zmogljivosti, bo predlagal posvetovanja v skladu s 17. členom tega sporazuma.

9. Če se po ponovnem pregledu pogodbenicama ne uspe sporazumeti o zmogljivostih, ki naj se zagotavljajo v dogovorjenem prometu, zmogljivost, ki jo bodo smeli zagotavljati določeni prevozniki pogodbenic, ne bo presegala skupne predhodno dogovorjene zmogljivosti, vključno s sezonskimi odstopanji.

Tudi vsaka bistvena sprememba reda letenja ali pogojev njihovega delovanja bo predložena v odobritev pristojnim organom. V posebnih primerih se lahko omenjeni rok skrajša v dogovoru s pristojnimi organi.
2. Za manjše ad hoc spremembe ali ob ad hoc dodatnih letih bodo določeni prevozniki pogodbenice zaprosili za predhodno dovoljenje pristojnih organov druge pogodbenice najmanj štiri delovne dneve pred njihovo nameravano uveljavitvijo. V posebnih primerih se lahko ta rok skrajša sporazumno z omenjenimi organi.
15. člen
STATISTIČNI PODATKI
Pristojni organi pogodbenice bodo pristojnim organom druge pogodbenice na njihovo zahtevo zagotavljali statistične podatke, ki so razumno potrebni za pregled zmogljivosti, ki se zagotavljajo v dogovorjenem prometu.
16. člen
TARIFE
1. Tarife, ki jih bodo zaračunavali določeni prevozniki ene pogodbenice za prevoz na ozemlje in z ozemlja druge pogodbenice, bodo določene na primernih ravneh, pri čemer bo primerna pozornost posvečena vsem pomembnim dejavnikom, vključno s poslovnimi stroški, primernemu dobičku in tarifam drugih prevoznikov na celoti ali na delu istih prog.
2. O tarifah iz 1. odstavka tega člena se bodo, če je mogoče, določeni prevozniki obeh pogodbenic dogovorili po posvetovanju, po potrebi z drugimi prevozniki, ki opravljajo promet na tej progi ali na njenem delu.

4. Odobritev tarif je lahko izrecna. Če nobeden od pristojnih organov ne izrazi svojega nestrinjanja v tridesetih (30) dneh od dneva, ko so bile tarife predložene v skladu z določili 3. odstavka tega člena, se bo štelo, da so tarife odobrene. Če bi bil rok za predložitev skrajšan, kot je predvideno v 3. odstavku tega člena, se lahko pristojna organa dogovorita, da je rok, v katerem je treba sporočiti nestrinjanje, krajši od trideset (30) dni.
5. Če se o tarifi ni mogoče dogovoriti v skladu z 2. odstavkom tega člena ali če je v roku iz 4. odstavka tega člena pristojni organ sporočil drugemu pristojnemu organu svoje nestrinjanje s katerokoli tarifo, o kateri je bilo dogovorjeno v skladu z 2. odstavkom tega člena, si bosta pristojna organa obeh pogodbenic prizadevala za sporazumno določitev tarife.
6. Če se pristojna organa ne moreta dogovoriti o tarifi, ki jima je bila predložena v skladu s 3. odstavkom tega člena, ali o določitvi tarife v skladu s 5. odstavkom tega člena, bo spor razrešen v skladu z določili o reševanju sporov iz 20. člena tega sporazuma.
7. Tarife, določene v skladu z določili tega člena, veljajo, dokler ne bodo določene nove tarife. V nobenem primeru pa tarifa ne bo podaljšana na temelju tega odstavka za dlje kot dvanajst (12) mesecev po datumu, ko bi sicer morala prenehati veljati.
8. Pristojna organa obeh pogodbenic si bosta po najboljših močeh prizadevala, da bi zagotovila, da bodo določeni prevozniki spoštovali dogovorjene tarife, registrirane pri pristojnih organih obeh pogodbenic, in da noben prevoznik ne bo na noben način neposredno ali posredno nezakonito zmanjševal nobenega deleža teh tarif.
