The EU-Ukraine Open Skies Agreement will be signed next spring, predicts Infrastructure Minister Volodymyr Omelyan. Under discussion for five years, this treaty will allow Ukrainian and European airlines to operate freely in the airspace of the European Union and Ukraine. Omelyan spoke at the completion of the ‘Twinning Project’ – bringing Ukraine airport and aircraft safety and operation norms into harmony with those of the EU. Separately, Economic and Trade Minister Stepan Kubiv predicts that 80% of Ukrainian standards will meet EU levels in 2020, up from 65% today.
