Tunisia: EU Council Greenlights Signing of Major Agreements in Aviation With Four Countries, Including Tunisia

Tunis/Tunisia — The European Union Council gave last June 28 the go-ahead for the signing of three neighbourhood aviation agreements - with Tunisia, Ukraine and Armenia, as well as an air transport agreement with Qatar, to be inked in autumn 2021 and thereafter ratified by each member state, the EU and other party.

"These agreements will open up the air transport market,offering new opportunities for both consumers and operators. Through more efficient connectivity, they will promote trade, tourism, investment and economic and social development," the statement reads.

"The three neighbourhood agreements will remove market restrictions in relation to the EU's neighbouring countries and associate these countries with the EU's internal aviation market, as they will adopt EU aviation standards and implement EU aviation rules," the Council specified.

All agreements contain robust environmental, social an fair competition clauses with strong enforcement mechanisms to avoid any distortions of competition or other abuses.
