A thesis covering regional "open skies" arrangements - SAM, MALIAT and PIASA

A collection of theses from students of the internationally renowned Institute of Air and Space Law at McGill University in Montreal, Canada is available online.

One that has just attracted my attention is that completed in 2003 by Sean McGonigle for his LLM entitled Comparative regulation of air transport in the Asia-Pacific region.

This thesis focuses on the Australia-New Zealand Single Aviation Market (SAM) Arrangements, the Multilateral Agreement on the Liberalization of International Air Transportation (MALIAT) and the Pacific Islands Air Transport Agreement (PIASA).

Having participated in the negotiation of all three air services arrangements as a member of the New Zealand delegation, I will be interested to read what Sean has to say.

Hi John, I'm writing a new article on the MALIAT and just came across this post (which I must admit to having miseed, as I have looked at your site from time to time). Would like to drop you a line if possible?
