Flight statistics in May: recovery of air traffic in Ukrainian airspace stabilizing

28th May 2021
Today the President of Ukraine hosted a meeting with the Slovak Prime Minister and expressed his gratitude to the Slovak government for ratifying the agreement, which will allow the Uzhhorod International Airport to resume full operation.
The agreement between the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine and the Government of the Slovak Republic on the determination of conditions for the use of a certain part of the Slovak Republic's airspace in connection with the provision of air traffic services to a designated Ukrainian air navigation service provider at the Uzhhorod International Airport will enter into force on June 5 this year.

This Agreement is the result of painstaking work carried out by Ukrainian and Slovak experts to restore the full operation of the Uzhhorod International Airport and to ensure sustainable air links between Transcarpathia and other regions of Ukraine and the world.

Thus, for the implementation of the Agreements provisions, a number of key tasks have been carried out, which Ukraine performed for the first time in its history. In particular, Ukrainian air navigation services provider (UkSATSE) has been certified for the first time under European Union (EU) standards and as a result was designated by the Slovak Party as a services provider in a certain part of the airspace of another country, Slovakia, as part of flights to/from Uzhhorod International Airport.

Technical aspects of cooperation between the air navigation services providers of the contracting parties have been established during the last year, publications on the delegation of Slovak airspace to the Ukrainian side were prepared, and the date of entry into force of these changes from September 9, 2021, was fixed.

This demonstrates a high level of trust from European counterparts and recognition of the Ukrainian provider's ability to work according to EU standards. It should be noted that the national airline "Rosa Vetrov" has already started planning flights to Uzhhorod airport and is preparing to operate its first scheduled flight from 1 June this year, which will be performed according to visual flight rules. From September 9, there will be instrument flights, which allow airlines to fly not only during daylight hours but also when weather conditions deteriorate.

In order to complete preparations for the resumption of instrument flights at the aerodrome, active work of UkSATSE, Ministry of Defence of the Slovak Republic and the Slovak air navigation services provider to implement technical measures, which are conditions for the implementation of the Agreement, continues.

The joint efforts of the Ukrainian and Slovak Parties and the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) are evidence of a high level of international cooperation and understanding of the needs of Ukraine and its region in order to ensure its functioning, development and creation of conditions for the expansion of flight geography.
