In addition, the rights also include international flights with a stopover abroad, where passengers can only board and disembark at the intermediate stage of the route that originally serves an airline that serves them. 146 It also includes the “stopover” in which passengers can board or disembark at a stopover as part of an itinerary between the arrival points of a multi-leg flight or connecting flights. Note146 Some international flights stop at several points in a foreign country, and passengers can sometimes make stops in the same way, but because the traffic being transported does not occur in the country where the flight takes place, it is not a matter of coasting, but of another form beyond rights. :110 The 1952 bilateral air services agreement between Japan and the United States is considered particularly controversial because of the granting of unlimited fifth freedom traffic rights to designated U.S. airlines operating in the Asia-Pacific region west of Japan. In the early 1990s, for example, the Japanese government`s refusal to allow flights on the New York City-Osaka-Sydney route sparked protests from U.S. management and airlines seeking proof of the route. The Japanese government responded that only about 10% of the traffic in the Japan-Australia sector was the third and fourth freedom traffic to and from the United States, while the bilateral agreement specified that the main justification for unlimited fifth freedom traffic was to fill aircraft carrying a large portion of U.S. or U.S. traffic under these rights.
Japan had maintained many unused rights of the Fifth Freedom beyond the United States. However, due to the increased operating costs of Japanese airlines and geographic circumstances, they were considered less valuable than the fifth freedom enjoyed by U.S. carriers over Japan. Japan serves as a useful gateway to Asia for North American travellers. The United States asserted that Japan`s favourable geographical location and the transportation of its flag airlines, with a considerable volume of six transit traffic through gateway cities in Japan, had helped to improve the competitive conditions. In 1995, the air transport agreement was updated by liberalizing Japanese airlines` access to U.S. destinations, while restrictions were imposed on U.S. carriers.
