On February 29, Ms. KAMIKAWA Yoko, Minister for Foreign Affairs of Japan, and H.E. Mr. Jan LIPAVSKÝ, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic, signed the “Agreement between Japan and the Czech Republic for Air Services” in Tokyo.
  1. The Agreement establishes a legal framework for the stable operation of scheduled air services between Japan and Czech Republic. The Agreement provides for the mutual granting of the right to operate scheduled air services and also stipulates basic principles for determining capacity, principles and procedures concerning tariffs, exemptions from taxes and other charges concerning fuel and other items used by aircraft, and ensuring measures for air safety and security.
    It is expected that this Agreement will further promote people-to-people and economic exchange between Japan and Czech Republic.
  2. Each Contracting Party of this Agreement will send through diplomatic channels to the other Contracting Party the notification confirming that its internal procedures necessary for the entry into force of this Agreement have been completed (in the case of Japan, the approval of the Diet is required.). The Agreement will enter into force on the first day of the third month following the date of receipt of the latter notification.
Intergovernmental negotiations for this Agreement began in July 2019, and an agreement in principle was reached in July 2023.
