International aviation agreements are a matter reserved to the UK Government. The Scottish Executive is however interested in any extension of air transport liberalisation, which has potential benefits for the Scottish economy, and we will promote Scotland’s case at any suitable opportunity. Sixth freedoms are not recognised by international aviation conventions and we have no plans to make representations on their application to Scottish airports.
