The European Union’s (EU) Mobility and Transport Commissioner, Violeta Bulc, is exploring the possibility for a more comprehensive aviation agreement with India.
Bulc recently met with India’s Civil Aviation Minister, Ashok Gajapathi Raju. It was there where she proposed the staging of an annual aviation summit in India to look at diverse methods to enhance aviation safety and security.
The same gathering would also tackle how to improve the size of airports.
“We shared connectivity issues during our meeting,” Bulc said.
“That’s why I invited the minister to consider the next step in our bilateral agreement, which would be a comprehensive aviation agreement. That will, of course, have a direct positive impact on tourism as well.”
“I am very encouraged by what we agreed to. Topics like safety, security, improving capacities of airports were all part of our discussion. I proposed to have a proper yearly summit on aviation in India, which I got a positive response from the minister. This will explore all possible concrete areas.”
