KIEV, February 05. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine and the European Union plan to sign a common aviation space agreement in Brussels on March 14, Ukraine’s acting minister for infrastructure Vladimir Kozak told a briefing on Wednesday.
Provisionally, the EU would be represented by European Commission Vice-President and Commissioner for Transport Siim Kallas, Kozak said of a deal offering Ukraine a range of benefits, including lower air fares.
Progressive liberalization of the parties’ aviation markets was also in sight which, according to EU statements, would help Ukraine and the EU become aviation partners.
When the agreement, which emerged at the EU Eastern Partnership summit in Vilnius last November, is ratified and comes into force, it will lift quotas currently limiting the number of flights, air carriers and routes. This will require Ukraine to adapt its legislation to EU requirements and regulations.
