In April 2010, the Moldovan Government expressed its wish to start negotiations for a Common Aviation Area Agreement (CAAA) between the EU and Moldova. After assessing the situation and performing the economic analysis of the possible impact of concluding such agreement, the European Commission (EC) started the negotiation of a comprehensive CAAA with Moldova. Priority areas for such agreement were market opening, freedom of establishment, equal conditions of competition and common rules in the areas of aviation safety, security, air traffic management, social conditions and environmental protection. In this context, the EC acknowledged that a project of Technical assistance needed to be introduced in Republic of Moldova.
Successfully delivered by NTU, the EU-funded project “Technical assistance for the implementation of the legal and regulatory framework in the aviation sector” (2013-2016), with a budget of 1.469.362 EUR, had the objective to improve air transport safety and security by assisting civil aviation authorities of the Republic of Moldova in the adoption and implementation of the legal and regulatory framework; in particular, to support the conformity of such framework to the EU aviation legislation, agreed prior in the EU – Moldova CAAA.
