Negotiations on Armenia’s accession to the European Common Aviation Area will launch in late April, minister of transport, communication and information technologies Vahan Martirosyan has said.
The Armenian minister was meeting European Commissioner for Mobility and Transport Violeta Bulc in Sofia, Bulgaria.
According to a ministry statement, Bulc gave a positive assessment to the start of negotiations and confirmed that the agreement will soon be signed.
Also in the spotlight of the meeting were issues related to the digitization in the transport sector and road safety challenges.
In this context, Martirosyan proposed holding a regional transport communications conference in Yerevan and invited Bulc to visit Armenia.
The European Common Aviation Area is defined by bilateral agreements between European countries about a single market in aviation services.
