UkSATSE starts to provide air navigation services in part of Slovak airspace
Today, the first flight to Uzhhorod International Airport was operated under the arrival, departure and approach procedures for instrument flight according to the Intergovernmental Agreement "On Defining the Conditions of Use of a Certain Part of the Airspace of the Slovak Republic in Connection with the Provision of Air Traffic Services with the Designation of a Ukrainian Air Navigation Service Provider at Uzhhorod International Airport".
Ukraine's ability to manage air traffic in the airspace of EU member state is confirmed by the renewed certificate that UkSATSE received from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) on 31 August this year, which justifies that the level of safety and quality of air navigation services that the Ukrainian provider guarantees comply with the renewed EU standards.

Air traffic recovering: number of flights over Ukraine in August reaches 76% of pre-crisis level
Gradual recovery of air traffic in Ukrainian airspace continues. In August, UkSATSE provided air navigation services to 29,048 flights, which is 76% of the pre-crisis August 2019 volume. Head of UkSATSE Andrii YARMAK: “The growth of air traffic in the area of responsibility of Ukraine is slightly higher than in Europe. The volume of August air traffic in the European region, as evidenced by EUROCONTROL experts, reached 71% compared to the corresponding period of the pre-crisis year 2019. Ukraine has a greater potential for recovery from coronacrisis, as its impact on the aviation industry in our country, and in particular on the national air navigation services provider, has been very severe. Currently, the recovery of air traffic in Ukraine, as well as across Europe, is rather rapid, as the pace has exceeded even the optimistic forecast made by EUROCONTROL in late May. We have reasons to hope for the best and continue working to increase air traffic volume”.

Opening the sky: new opportunities and perspectives for Ukraine
Andrii Yarmak: "The Common Aviation Space means the mutual unification of laws and technical regulations and, as a result, the liberalization of the air transportation market, lifting restrictions on flights between airports in Ukraine and the European Union - both for national and European air carriers. This will give a fresh impetus to the European standards transition of passenger rights, environmental protection and safety.

It should be noted that no change is foreseen in air traffic management, as Ukraine has been a member of EUROCONTROL since 2004, and the Ukrainian air navigation system is part of the European-wide system. The national air navigation services provider, UkSATSE, follows European rules and regulations in all areas of its core activities. In particular, this is proven by a certificate from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) confirming compliance of the provider's operations and services with EU standards".

Renewed EASA certificate – final step for UkSATSE to restore instrument flight at Uzhhorod airdrome
Andrii Yarmak, Head of Ukrainian State Air Traffic Services Enterprise: “UkSATSE is ready to provide from September 9, 2021 the declared air navigation services in accordance with the European requirements in a certain part of the airspace of the Slovak Republic in the context of the commitments stipulated by the Agreement between the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine and the Government of the Slovak Republic”.
This readiness is confirmed by obtaining by UkSATSE a renewed European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) certificate on August 31, 2021. The renewed EASA certificate includes, inter alia, additional services to be provided in the part of the EU member state's airspace that have been included in the EASA certificate to ensure efficient and coordinated services and to meet the needs of aircraft operators.

Not just managers. 10 effective state managers of Ukraine according to Focus
The head of UkSATSE Andrii Yarmak is on the list of the country’s effective state managers. “These people do not make populist statements at the Verkhovna Rada, rarely attend loud talk shows, because they are busy - working. And we decided to talk about them”, - says the publication of the Focus magazine. According to the magazine information, the assessment is based, in particular, on the ratio of promises made or goals set for the state managers - with the work they have done. In particular, it is important how well the enterprise or agency was able to withstand the crisis period led by the head.

Today is the 22nd anniversary of the creation of the Joint Civil-Military Air Traffic Management System of Ukraine
22 years ago, on 19 July 1999, the Joint Civil-Military Air Traffic Management System of Ukraine was created (JCMS). All of its units are part of UkSATSE, as close civil-military coordination is very important for the efficient use of airspace and ensuring a high level of safety - while respecting the interests of national defence and economy of the State.
Civil and military specialists work in the same shifts at UkSATSE and promptly take joint decisions on air traffic management issues and guarantee safe and efficient use of airspace by both state and civil aviation, which is especially important in the current environment. The main unit of the system is the Ukrainian Airspace Management and Planning Centre (UKRAEROCENTER).

Air traffic recovery in June: the number of flights serviced by UkSATSE reached almost 60% of pre-crisis level
Air traffic in Ukraine is gradually returning to the pre-crisis volumes. In June 2021 there were 21,113 flights in the airspace of Ukraine, which were provided by UkSATSE with air navigation services, amounting to 59.6% of the June volume of flights in the pre-crisis year 2019.
The May indicators were lower: 56.6% of the flights during the same period in 2019.
Therefore we record though smooth, but positive dynamics of air traffic in the airspace of Ukraine.

The flights intensity increase is caused by the tourist season start, gradual opening of borders of foreign countries, restoration of a number of suspended international flights to Europe due to the pandemic and appearance of new air carriers on the aviation market of Ukraine.
