TIACA urges global cargo open skies

 THE International Air Cargo Association (TIACA) wants a global trade liberalisation agreement that separates cargo from passenger services. It hopes that this will develop a more competitive air cargo marketplace.
“The Association supports liberalisation of air cargo and express delivery services for unfettered market access and believes bilateral negotiations should be unrestricted as to the ability of air carriers to move air cargo in any international market between two points anywhere in the world,” said Larry Coyne, an airline executive and member of TIACA’s Industry Affairs Committee.
“We believe that a separate cargo annex should be pursued as the first step towards market liberalisation and openness. Often developing countries see the advantages of market openness for the movement of goods before they recognize the same advantages on the passenger side.”
He said that multi-lateral freedoms for cargo would support the current parallel work on liberalisation principles in the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development as well as the Trans-Atlantic Common Area negotiations between Europe and the United States.
