Petition to European Parliament and the EU Council To accelerate the signing of an agreement on the Common Aviation Area between the European Union and its member states and Ukraine

We, Visa-Free Coalition members require signing of an agreement on the Common Aviation Area between the European Union and its member states and Ukraine in the near future.

Further postponing of the Agreement will hinder the usage of visa-free regime for Ukrainians and significantly limit the development of both Ukrainian and European air transport companies. The agreement has been postponed by the European side because of not been agreed concerning the formulation of the article about the territorial application in terms of Gibraltar between Spain and the United Kingdom. In order, to resolve the issue we propose to exclude this paragraph from the agreement and shortly sign it. We do believe that it could promote accessible international mobility for Ukrainian citizens and provide availability for European companies to fly without restriction to any airport of Ukraine and Ukrainian carriers - to any airport of Europe. In particular, agreement will ensure free and fair competition and mutual market access to the air transport markets of both Ukraine and the EU member states. The deal will also strengthen flights safety and certification regulations. Having in mind above mentioned we call on the members of the European Parliament and the EU Council to push forward all the efforts to sign the agreement on the Common Aviation Area between the European Union and its member states and Ukraine which remained to be with uncertain status.
