An agreement on liberalization of flights between Ukraine and Moldova should be signed within the next two months, the CFTS reports, citing information from the Ukrainian Ministry of Infrastructure.

Talks were held within the framework of the Ukrainian-Moldovan Working Group on Transport in Chisinau (Moldova) from 28 July to 29. Ukraine’s Deputy Minister of Infrastructure Viktor Dovhan signed a protocol with the Moldovan Ministry of Transport and Road Infrastructure at the end of the talks.

Among other things, the protocol stipulates that an agreement on liberalization of the conditions of the Open Skies Agreement between Moldova and the European Union, which provides for increasing the frequency of flights operated by Ukrainian air carriers, should be signed between the aviation services of the two countries by 1 October 2016.

As reported, the State Aviation Service of Ukraine and the Lithuania Ministry of Transport and Communications agreed last week to remove all the restrictions on air services between the two countries. In particular, the agreement applies to the number of points of departure/arrival.

Now, there are also no restrictions on the number of designated carriers and flights between Lithuania and Ukraine.

As the CFTS earlier reported, the Estonian government has decided to lift the restrictions on the number of airlines and air routes between Estonia and Ukraine.

Italy and Poland lifted all restrictions on flights to Ukraine in March. The Open Skies principle entered into effect between Ukraine and the United States in January.
