EU and Indonesia agree on horizontal air services agreement

The European Commission and the Government of the Republic of Indonesia initialled today in Brussels an aviation agreement which will restore legal certainty regarding bilateral air services agreements between Indonesia and EU Member States.

The agreement will bring several provisions in bilateral air services agreements between 17 EU Member States and Indonesia in line with European law. Most importantly, it will remove nationality restrictions in bilateral air services agreements between EU Member States and Indonesia. It will thereby allow any EU airline to operate flights between Indonesia and any EU Member State in which it is established, in which a bilateral agreement with Indonesia already exists and traffic rights are available.

The agreement is an important step towards strengthening aviation relations and encouraging traffic between the EU and Indonesia.

The agreement with Indonesia is the 40 th "horizontal" aviation agreement negotiated by the European Commission.
