The provisions are set out in the administrative clauses of the Agreement, the exchange of lines or a separate Annex, a Protocol or an Exchange of Notes. They may concern the authorisation or acceptance of non-programmable operations, the applicable charter rules, the guiding principles or the definition of the provisions of the Agreement applicable to non-planned operations. May cover special provisions relating to capacity, the granting of traffic rights or other provisions of the Agreement. Capacity is agreed, prior to the commencement of operation, either by governments, by their aviation authorities, or between their designated companies, subject to government authorization. If the provision of capacity is similar to a Bermuda I clause, but a separate provision requires consultation or coordination of capacity or the prior submission and approval of frequencies or schedules, it shall classify the reference file as a prefixation. Similarly, an agreement with Bermuda I may stipulate that aviation authorities should jointly define the practical application of the principles of capability. This implies their focus on capacity, the nature of predetermination. Where the provision of capacity is not clearly a pre-determination or other defined type, but requires the competent authorities to authorise capacity increases, the clause shall be considered as a pre-determination. Determined by the nature and number of parties who have signed the agreement. It can be bilateral (two signatory parties), multilateral (more than two signatory parties) or regional (usually more than two signatory parties and/or a group of States as a contracting party, depending on the situation).
The database has an integrated consultation function that allows States and other users to identify all agreements and related amendments that are available in the database and that concern one or more countries. Allows a designated airline to provide its own groundhandling or to choose, at its option, its own groundhandling agent in the territory of the other party. The provision could also foreshadow a groundhandling agreement between the airlines or the parties themselves. May also be part of a provision relating to technical maintenance, although a technical maintenance clause does not necessarily cover groundhandling. . . .
