Abstract

This chapter examines the unique regulatory environment that trans-border air carriers work within. Using a U.S. perspective the concept of the bilateral air agreement is outlined and discussed. These agreements form the basis for how two countries decide to share their airspaces among their air carriers. The trend has been toward more liberal approaches. To explain this trend the concepts of the Freedoms of the Air and Open Skies are discussed. Other liberalization programs are also discussed; specifically, co-terminalization and cabotage. Finally, the air cargo transfer operations at Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport are used as an example to highlight a rare example of unilateral liberalization on the part of the United States.

Abstract

In this paper, the changes that have taken place since September 11, 2001 regarding cargo inbound to the United States are examined. An appraisal of the new rules proposed by the U.S. Bureau of Customs and Border Protection is provided along with an evaluation, using a game‐theoretic model, of how shippers and carriers may be expected to adapt to this new set of regulations. Since Canada is the most prominent trade partner of the United States, an overview of these changes in the context of the U.S.‐Canada border is presented.
