ABSTRACT
The British Government's proposal to open and operate Prestwick Airport to cargo services by U.S. airlines was opposed by British cargo airlines. The cargo service would allow American airlines to load freight in Great Britain for delivery to a third country in competition with local cargo companies. The related approval of Federal Express' application for a permission to operate fifth freedom services from Prestwick and Stansted airports was taken negatively by British companies. In line with the protests, the British government proposed a cargo agreement with the U.S. government that would ensure that British carriers are able to benefit from the right to lease and hire their aircraft and crews in America. The controversies resulted in a consultation calling for the British government to clarify its industrial policies that must be protective of local companies.
