Representatives of the UkSATSE and State Aviation Service of Ukraine also took part in the meeting.
The Minister of Infrastructure Volodymyr Omelyan emphasized that EASA certification is an important step for the creation of a regulatory framework for the provision of services by the UkSATSE in the airspace of Slovakia necessary for maneuvering of aircrafts arriving and / or leaving to / from the airport of Uzhgorod: "This is a very important issue not only for Transcarpathian region, but also for Ukraine as a whole. As you know, Transcarpathian region is separated from Ukraine by mountains, so it is very important for us to have regular daily flights from Kyiv to Uzhgorod and other cities. Moreover, we consider the issue of EASA audit as an audit of the entire Ukraine," - the Minister of Infrastructure said.
The EASA representatives thanked the Ukrainian party for their good preparation, assured in understanding the importance of the audit result for the Ukrainian side.
