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.
This agreement was a step within the Moldovan government’s strategic program of integration into the European Union. Along with Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, and Ukraine, Moldova is a member of the Eastern Partnership program geared towards closer political and economic relations with the European Union. In the medium-term perspective, Moldova wants to liberalize the visa regimen and ease up trade with the European Union.
