Japan and the Czech Republic Sign Aviation Agreement

Ministry of Foreign Affairs

The governments of Japan and the Czech Republic have signed an aviation agreement.

Governmental negotiations began in July 2019, and a substantive agreement was reached in July 2023. The signing took place on February 29th, in Tokyo, between Japanese Foreign Minister Yoko Kamikawa and her Czech counterpart, Jan Lipavský.

This agreement establishes a legal framework that enables the stable operation of regular air services between Japan and the Czech Republic. It grants the right to operate regular air services reciprocally, and specifies basic principles for capacity determination, principles and procedures for fares, as well as exemptions for taxes on things like the fuel used by aircraft, and measures for aviation security and safety. The conclusion of this agreement is expected to further promote people-to-people and economic exchanges between Japan and the Czech Republic.

Hereafter, each country will notify the other upon the completion of their respective internal procedures, and the agreement will come into effect on the first day of the third month following the receipt of the later notification.
