By Maksim Tsurkov - Trend:
Both the EU and Azerbaijan feel progress in talks over the Common Aviation Area Agreement, Henrik Hololei, the European Commission’s director general for mobility and transport, said at a press conference in Baku Jan. 30.
He said the parties intend to make full use of the opportunities the aviation agreement will open for them.
The agreement is the main goal of the talks that are currently underway, he noted.
The Azerbaijani side clearly indicated its position that the agreement should be mutually beneficial, and the EU supports it, Hololei added.
Creation of a common aviation area is an initiative of the European Commission and aims to open and integrate aviation markets. This will lead to new opportunities for consumers and operators, and, most importantly, to high standards in terms of flight safety as well as air traffic management.
