Ninth Freedom of the Air Law and Legal Definition
Ninth freedom of the air refers to the right of a country’s aircraft to carry traffic between two domestic points in a foreign country. The freedom facilitates traffic within a foreign country without continuing service to one's own country.
It is the right or privilege of transporting cabotage traffic of the granting country on a service performed entirely within the territory of the granting country. The ninth freedom of the air is also known as stand alone cabotage right or ninth Freedom right. The right is also referred as open-skies privileges.
