MOSCOW, February 17. /TASS/.Russian and Egyptian airlines will be able to perform flights between the two countries only provided that they complete an agreement on flight operating safety with a separate Russian legal entity. That is according to the draft protocol between the governments of the Russian Federation and the Arab Republic of Egypt on cooperation in the area of civil aviation safety, published on the website of the Russian government.
"Russian and Egyptian airlines will only be permitted to perform regular and non-scheduled flights from international airports of the Arab Republic of Egypt to the territory of the Russian Federation provided that those airlines have completed an agreement stipulating services on control over the aviation safety procedures being accomplished, with the Russian legal entity," the protocol said.
According to the document, the Russian side may set up a separate legal entity that will accept the responsibility to exert control over aviation safety. The employees of this legal entity will be employed by Russia’s Federal Air Transport Agency, or Rosaviatsia. The legal entity will be able to exert control over the procedures of ensuring aviation safety regarding aircraft, passengers, cargoes, luggage, mail, flight catering and board supplies bound for the Russian Federation.
Earlier on Friday the Russian government approved the aviation safety protocol between Russia and Egypt prepared by Russia’s Transport Ministry.
