India, China sign fifth freedom rights
 
By Anand and Madhura Katti, Mumbai (2008-03-24)

THE aviation authorities of India and China decided in New Delhi on March 19 and 20 that the designated airlines of both the countries would be entitled to exercise fifth freedom traffic rights to any three beyond points with not more than two points in one region.

India has specified the US and Canada as one region, Australia and New Zealand as the second and Asia as the third region for the three beyond points for Indian carriers. China has specified Africa, the Middle East and Europe for Chinese carriers.

Jet Airways has been waiting for this approval (see TTG Daily News January 17, 2008) to start Mumbai-Shanghai-San Francisco flights with its new Boeing 777-300ER aircraft. The flight will take 19 hours compared with 25 hours via other routes.

The designated airlines of each country will be entitled to exercise fifth freedom traffic rights on a maximum of 14 frequencies to all the beyond points put together.
