It also created a framework for international civil aviation, including the principle that every State has complete and exclusive sovereignty over the airspace above its territory, and that no scheduled international flight may operate over the territory of a Contracting State without its consent.
In addition to other rules, the Convention gives the ICAO Council the power to settle disputes between Contracting States.
