CHISINAU, June 26 (Itar-Tass) — Moldova has joined a common air space of the European Union. An agreement to this effect was signed on Tuesday by Moldovan Prime Minister Vlad Filat in Brussels, the press service of the Moldovan government reported.
The agreement will help to improve the quality of service and boost competitive edge of Moldovan airlines, which will have to bring their activities in line with European safety standards, the press service noted. The document also provides for the presence on the Moldovan market of European air companies, which offer 30-percent cheaper services.
