English term or phrase: freedom
What are freedom traffic and freedom opportunities?

"Profitability of routes and services continued to focus on third and fourth freedom traffic and selected fifth and sixth freedom opportunities."

This was taken from an annual report for an airline.

English translation:freedom traffic
Explanation:
Currently there are generally considered to be nine freedoms of the air . Although these operations are called "freedoms", they are not necessarily available to an airline. Most nations of the world exchange first and second freedoms through the International Air Services Transit Agreement. The other freedoms, to the extent that they are available, are usually exchanged between countries in bilateral or multilateral air services agreements.

Opportunites may not have become actual "rights" between Parties, but I'm not sure on that.
