The treaty established that no international air service in relation to regular routes can be operated on or on the territory of a contracting state without their express authorization. “I think it`s a great service, keep up the good work.” In 1913, a bilateral exchange of notes [1] between Germany and France was signed in the first agreement to provide airship services.
