International services

In negotiating and managing bilateral arrangements, the objective of the Department for Transport's International Aviation and Safety Division (IASD) is to increase consumer benefits by permitting the operation of a wider range of services. This involves negotiating traffic rights from more airports in the UK to more destinations abroad, gaining access for more airlines to compete on routes which are already served and allowing airlines to compete on price. 

IASD aims for agreements which provide airlines the freedom to set their own fares, provided that they are pro-competitive and which do not limit the number of airlines or frequencies on routes to be served, so leaving airlines free to mount the capacity they believe to be appropriate to serve the market.
