309. Proposed Air Routes for Inter-Zonal Flights.
The meeting considered CORC/P(45)170.
General Robertson73 explained that it was absolutely essential for the British to have air corridors both for flights from Berlin to Bukeburg [Bückeburg], Headquarters of the British Army of the Rhine, and from Berlin to Hamburg, where this headquarters had a number of branches.
General Sokolovsky76 then stated that he was not empowered to settle questions concerning other air corridors mentioned in the paper, viz.: Berlin-Warsaw, Berlin-Prague, Berlin-Copenhagen and Bukeburg [Bückeburg]-Prague, as these required decisions at governmental level.
On General Sokolovsky’s proposal
(309) Approved CORC/P(45)170 and agreed to submit it to the Control Council for confirmation of that portion which deals with air corridors from Berlin to the West.
