In 1978, significant developments took place regarding international fares and rates which were, in some cases, reflected in revised bilateral agreements. Considerable headway was also achieved in the major overhaul of the International Air Transport Association (IATA) Conference machinery. New directives were issued to recognize the prime interest of third-and fourth-freedom airlines in establishing fare levels for the traffic carried at the lowest fares, together with the interest of other carriers in carrying traffic at such fares, and to change provisions for traffic conferences to allow airlines to introduce innovative fares in response to changing market conditions without automatically rescinding an existing fares and rates agreement. Comments are also made on IATA passenger agencies, the alteration of conditions-of-service regulations, and baggage problems. Regional developments are reviewed, and graphical data are presented on the development of civil air transport of ICAO states, trends in load factors on scheduled services, long-term regional trends, fatal accident rates for passengers, trend in number of aerodromes required for international civil aviation, and on the actual runway lengths at aerodromes required for international civil aviation. Developments in fares and rates for domestic air services in Contracting States are also discussed.
