The auditors of EASA, the European Aviation Safety Agency, have completed the checks of Ukraerorukh Ukraine's State Air Traffic Services Enterprise for meeting the EU requirements. The press office of Ukraine's infrastructure ministry reported this on Monday.
'On November 16, the auditors completed certification activities within the audit of Ukraerorukh, with the latter conducted in the units based in Kyiv, Lviv, and Uzhgorod. The EASA audit was performed under the supervision of the authoritative body of the Slovak Republic and Ukraine's State Aviation Service', the message says.
The goal of certification is to meet the requirements set by the EU legal framework and, consequently, granting Ukraerorukh the right to provide the services of air transportation over a certain part of the Slovakian territory. The ministry added that Ukraine needs this right for the aircraft to be able to take off and land on the Uzhgorod airfield.
The EASA auditors marked the company's readiness to get the certificate and high level of cooperation for the sake of a comprehensive audit.
Currently, Ukraerorukh plans to complete the technical measures for preparing the final report of EASA auditors. It is supposed to be ready by early December. The document will provide the basic reason to obtain the certificate, which confirms that the company's service quality meets the EU standards.
