Within the framework of the 23rd Summit in Kyiv on October 12, Ukraine and the European Union signed an agreement on the Common Aviation Area. Finally, the Ukrainian sky has become "open" to new opportunities. The signed document includes:
- Mutual opening of aviation markets (passenger, cargo, and mail transport) between Ukraine and the EU, aimed at increasing trade turnover, tourist flows, and investment volumes.
- Ukraine's transition to European standards in civil aviation, covering passenger rights protection, air traffic management, environmental protection, and aviation safety.
