Ukraine is harmonizing its national legislation on certification of airports and aerodromes with European norms. Experts from Spain will provide assistance in this area within the framework of a Twinning project, the CFTS reports, citing the State Aviation Service.

The Twinning experts will implement in Ukraine the project "Approximation of the Legislation of Ukraine in the Fields of Certification of Aerodromes/Airports and Airworthiness with the Relevant EU Norms and Standards" over a period of two years. The project will officially start on 29 July.

The project focuses on seven major EU regulations on this topic and includes training and retraining of aerodrome/airport certification inspectors, analysis of the existing certification systems, proposals and recommendations on their improvement, and familiarization with the Spanish experience in the area of airport management based on the example of the state-owned Aena company.

The Twinning project is a tool for harmonizing the legislation of the European Union and its neighboring countries. The project aims to improve the interaction between state agencies, which will ultimately facilitate speedy integration of the countries.
