Single European Sky to Foster Transit Traffic via Kyiv


Source: Interfax

Full-scaled implementation of the EU Common Aviation Area Agreement (ECAA) will make Ukraine, and Boryspil International Airport in particular, more attractive to new airlines (including low-cost carriers), foster competition and contribute to better quality and lower prices of air services, believes Boryspil CEO Oleksii Kochanov.

“An obvious consequence of implementing the EU Common Aviation Area Agreement will be the increased range and frequency of flights to Europe, while Ukrainian airlines will have enough time to prepare for effective competition with European carriers and expand their routes to the East before the Agreement becomes effective. This will give a strong momentum for the development of transit traffic via Kyiv, with Boryspil Airport becoming a competitive regional hub”, airport’s Public Relations Department reports quoting Mr. Kochanov.

As was previously reported with reference to Arseniy Herasymiv, attorney-at-law with Ilyashev & Partners, the EU Common Aviation Area Agreement is expected to provide new equal opportunities in the aviation market and eliminate customs and tax barriers for European and Ukrainian airlines.

The EU Common Aviation Area Agreement was initialled in Vilnius on November 28, 2013.

In particular, the ECAA provides that as from IATA summer season 2015 (March 31, 2015 – Interfax Ukraine), all European airlines will be able to operate direct flights to Ukraine from anywhere in the EU. The same will apply for Ukrainian airlines.

All limitations to weekly flights between Ukraine and the EU will also be removed. Besides, the ECAA will help improve Ukraine-EU relations and benefit both aviation industry and consumers.
