The basic characteristic of the aviation sector is its integration into the international environment. Slovenia is a member of all the major international organisations in this area – the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO), the European Civil Aviation Conference (ECAC) and the European Organisation for the Safety of Air Navigation (EUROCONTROL). This makes us a full member of the international aviation community. We also participate in other international communities, through which we try to promote our interests.
We are responsible for concluding and implementing all international treaties concerning international civil aviation. Thus we are responsible for the implementation of the Convention on International Civil Aviation (the Chicago Convention) and its Annexes, the Convention for the Unification of Certain Rules for International Carriage by Air (the Montreal Convention), conventions concerning criminal offences committed on aircrafts (e.g. the Tokyo Convention and the Hague Convention) and other treaties.
We are also responsible for concluding and implementing international agreements on international scheduled air transport with a view to increasing the connectivity of the country and providing a supportive business environment for Slovenian air carriers and international airports.
