Whereas Jerusalem airport lies in the occupied Arab territories and is registered under the jurisdiction of Jordan in ICAO Middle East Air Navigation Plan;
Recalling that Articles 1, 5 and 6 of the Convention on International Civil Aviation provide that Contracting States recognize that every State has complete and exclusive sovereignty over the airspace above its territory and that no scheduled air services, or non-scheduled international air services for the purpose of taking on or discharging passengers, cargo or mail, may be operated over or into the territory of a Contracting State except with the special permission or other authorization by that State;
The Assembly resolves that all Contracting States should, in implementation of the above relevant Articles of the Convention, take all necessary measures to refrain from operating, or giving permission to any airline to operate any air service, whether scheduled or non-scheduled, to or from Jerusalem airport, unless prior permission is granted pursuant to the provisions of the said Articles.
