The date when Ukraine and the EU will be able to sign an “open sky”

Ukraine and the European Union may sign the Open Skies Agreement on February 11. This was announced by Olga Stefanishina, one of the representatives of European and Euro-Atlantic integration.

“At the time of the meeting of the Association Council on the part of Ukraine, all procedures for signing the Open Skies Agreement will be completed. The signing itself also depends on the European Commission. If we succeed procedurally, we will sign the Open Skies Agreement at the Association Council. Air transportation will become an affordable mode of transport. Given that we have a visa-free regime, this will increase people-to-people contacts and flights between the EU and Ukraine “, – said Stefanishina on the air of the Pryamoy TV channel.

She also added that the Agreement is about creating a new market, competition, access to air transportation and the launch of more flights. At the same time, the emphasis was made on the fact that Ukraine is obliged to revise legislation, rules of flights and consumer protection.

The Ukrainian authorities have been negotiating with the EU on a common aviation space for several years. Open Skies will allow Ukrainian and European airlines to operate freely in each other’s space. So the last time the signing of the Agreement was postponed in March 2019 for an indefinite period.
