Us China Bilateral Aviation Agreement
At the time of the agreement, it was planned to continue the negotiations, which were to begin in 2006, which resulted in a new agreement in 2007.  The year 2019 offers China and the United States the opportunity to sign an open skies agreement. This would first remove restrictions on flights between countries – important given that both nations have saturated primary traffic rights and there have been fruitless negotiations on extending the allowance. All Nippon Airways VP Strategic Planning Tadashi Matsushita pointed out that the discussion between China and the United States on the open skies resembles the Japan-US debate that has taken place over the past decade. The increased capacity in Tokyo solved many problems with Japanese niches, but ana was largely interested in creating a joint venture with ATI with United Airlines, which made an agreement possible. In December 2017, a bilateral aviation safety agreement (BASA) was also signed, paving the way for enhanced eu-China cooperation in all areas of aviation safety, ensuring high standards and enabling the growth of the aviation industry in the EU and Indochina. In April 2006, the two countries began negotiations to further liberalize the bilateral agreement. Talks were suspended in August 2006, but subsequently resumed. The United States stated that the suspension of the talks was due to an unrelated problem.  Unofficial Chinese sources indicate that there have been concerns about a “gap” in the ability of Chinese airlines to compete with U.S. airlines.  Negotiations are expected to resume in January 2007.
 U.S. open ski policy goes hand in hand with the globalization of U.S. airlines. By providing U.S. airlines with unlimited access to our partners` markets and flight rights at points between and beyond, open-ski agreements offer maximum operational flexibility to U.S. airlines worldwide. An agreement reached on 7 July 2007 allows almost unlimited natogene services between China and Guam, as well as between China and the Northern Mariana Islands. These unlimited rights do not include flights from Beijing or Shanghai operated by U.S.
airlines, but also cities for Chinese airlines on the mainland.  United Airlines received additional frequencies under this agreement and launched the shanghai-San Francisco non-stop flight in April 2000.  The 2004 agreement resulted in the expansion of flights between the two countries in 2005 and a new Northwest Airlines air traffic between Tokyo and Guangzhou, which began on 1 November 2004 with Boeing 757 aircraft.  (The route was scheduled to resume on July 6, 2011 by Delta, but the airline postponed the service indefinitely.) United Airlines took off from Chicago-Shanghai on October 31, 2004.  The US Open Skies agreements apply to passenger and freight companies. Open skies cannot be carried out only with passenger airlines that are satisfied with market access. US freight operators have taken a lead in defending US-UAE/Qatar open skies agreements, since they have extensive networks and fifth freedom rights in the UAE and Qatar. A horizontal agreement with China was signed in December 2017 and is expected to be signed in 2018. This agreement will allow any EU airline to fly between China and each EU member state in which it is established and where there is a bilateral agreement and traffic rights with China.
