Bilateral Aviation Agreements restricting flights to China

The request was successful.

Dear Department for Transport,

According to the November 2010 Treasury webpage

Combined Policy Outcomes of the Third China-UK Economic and
Financial Dialogue

"17. Both sides agreed to review their bilateral aviation
arrangements with a view to further enhancing aviation relations
between the two countries. The two sides are committed to holding
formal consultations on bilateral aviation issues in April 2011."

The written answer

noted that in March 2012

"The details of the air services arrangements between the UK and
the six countries referred to are as follows:

....(b) China—restricted to six points in the UK and six points in
China since 2004 with a current limit of 31 passenger services per
week by the airlines of each side allowed;"

Under the Freedom of Information Act, please can you supply me with information held by the Government relating to the formal consultations on this matter held between 1st December 2010 and 1st July 2012.

I have already sent this request to the Treasury but in case it is more appropriate, I have also copied it here to DfT .

Yours faithfully,

T Henderson

Hazel Smith, Department for Transport
