The Open Skies policy, first introduced in the U.S. in the early 1990s, could be called a standard for new international aviation frameworks. In Japan, the government is now promoting the policy, and has concluded Open Skies agreements with the U.S. and other nations.

In general, people in the U.S. recognize that the Open Skies policy has brought benefits to the airline industry, customers and economy. However, when we forecast the future of Japan’s aviation industry, it is worthwhile to grasp what impact this policy has actually wrought, and to evaluate whether it is applicable today in an aviation sector that has changed dramatically. Moreover, there is much to be gained by analyzing strategies in other countries.

Along those lines, JITI presented a keynote speech on current trends in the U.S. airline industry, and an analysis of the U.S. Open Skies policy and its impact. In the following panel discussion, participants exchanged views on the Open Skies policy and suggested desirable strategies for Japanese stakeholders.
