GEORGIA SIGNS AIR TRANSPORT DEAL WITH EU

The European Union has signed an air transport agreement with Georgia for integration into the European common aviation market. The agreement removes all restrictions on prices and the number of weekly flights between Georgia and the EU. It will also enable all EU airlines to operate direct flights to Georgia from anywhere in the EU and vice versa.

The deal will open up and integrate the respective markets through the creation of a “Common Aviation Area” based on common rules in areas such as aviation safety and security.

Vice-President Siim Kallas, responsible for transport, said: “The comprehensive air services agreement signed in Brussels today is very important for further strengthening the overall economic, trade and tourism relations between Georgia and the EU. The agreement will allow Georgia to become a full partner of the EU in aviation and gradually integrate Georgia into a wider pan-European aviation market. This is a very important step in our strategy of closer integration between the EU and its neighbourhood.”

Georgia will harmonise its legislation with European standards and implement EU aviation rules in areas such as aviation safety, security, environment, consumer protection, air traffic management, economic regulation, competition issues and social aspects.
