Concessions For United States Airlines ANOTHER LINK COMPLETE Rec. 1 p.m. WASHINGTON, Aug; 5. The State Department announced the conclusion of a "Five Freedoms" agreement with Switzerland, based on the recommendations of the Chicago Conference of 1944. The agreement gives the United States airlines the right to fly over Switzerland, make non-traffic stops, and pick up and discharge cargo, passengers and mail at Geneva or another suitable airport. The Swiss gain reciprocal rights in America. The Associated Press says this completes another link in the planned American airline routes over the North Atlantic to Ireland, Paris, Switzerland, Italy, Greece, the Near East and the Middle East. Similar pacts have been made with Sweden, Denmark, Spain, Iceland and Ireland.
