The setting of policy and negotiation of traffic rights is undertaken by the Department for Transport. Before granting an operating permit for scheduled flights, the CAA ensures that the services are undertaken in accordance with the traffic rights and conditions provided under the air service arrangements the UK has negotiated with the state where the airline is registered.
In the case of non-scheduled (charter) flights the UK seeks reciprocity to ensure that UK airlines are allowed similar opportunities from foreign authorities.
If you have any queries in relation to the application of an air service agreements or designation under such an agreement then you should contact the Department for Transport.
