The Department of State to the Swedish Embassy
The Department of State refers to the discussions

that took place in Washington, D.C. from February 22 to February 26, 1983, between representatives of the Government of the United States of America and the Government of Sweden with respect to the Air Transport Agreement between the United States of America and Sweden, signed December 16, 1944, as amended,['] and to the memorandum of Understanding between the Government of the United States of America and members of the European Civil Aviation Conference, signed December 17, 19822] and opened for signature February 1, 1983, and to other issues relating to their civil aviation relationship. As a result of these discussions, the Department of State proposes that Paragraph B in the Annex of such Air Transport Agreement be amended to read as follows:
"B. Airlines of Sweden designated under the present Agreement are, except as otherwise specified below, accorded rights of transit and non-traffic stop in the territory of the United States, as well as the right to pick up and discharge international traffic in passengers, cargo and mail at the points in the United States specified in the following routes:

1. From Sweden via intermediate points to (a) New
York and (b) Chicago; in both directions. 1/
2. From Sweden via Greenland to Seattle and Los
Angeles; in both directions. 1/
3. From Sweden to Anchorage, and beyond to Tokyo, Japan; in both directions; provided, however, that between Anchorage and Tokyo cargo may be carried on the lower deck only, and all-cargo services may not be provided.
4. From Sweden to San Juan, Puerto Rico, and points beyond, with only blind sector rights between San Juan and points beyond; in both directions.

Note 1: The Government of Sweden may select a single point, except Miami, in the contiguous 48 United States, to which its designated airlines may provide service on routes 1 or 2 in place of any one of hew York, Chicago, Seattle, or Los Angeles. This right to change points in the United States may be exercised only once and not later than two years from the date on which this amendment to the agreement enters into force. This change will be exercised by notifying the Government of the United States through diplomatic channels of the new point to be selected and the point to be given up, together with the date on which such change shall be effective. Any such change may not be reversed by either Sweden or the United States."


If this proposal is agreeable to the Government of Sweden, the Government of the United States of America will be pleased to consider this note and the reply of the Government of Sweden concurring therein as constituting an amendment to the Air Transport Agreement, as amended, between the two Governments, which shall enter into force on the same day on which the Government of the United States receives written confirmation that Sweden, Denmark, and Norway have become parties to the U.S.-ECAC Memorandum of Understanding of December 17, 1982, opened for signature February 1, 1983.1']
