TRACECA Civil Aviation Safety / EASA Project

The objective of the project is two-fold:

a)    For countries which are part of the EU’s European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP): to ensure effective participation in the pan-European civil aviation system (either in the framework of comprehensive aviation agreements already concluded with the EU or in anticipation of such agreements);

b)    For Central Asian countries: to provide support and capacity building to the civil aviation authorities so that they are able to fulfil their international obligations in terms of air safety.  


This is achieved through:

  • Supporting the implementation of comprehensive aviation agreements and paving the way towards the Common Aviation Area;
  • Supporting the development of common safety standards and procedures;
  • Fostering cooperation between EASA and its partners, as well as among the partner countries themselves through dedicated regional cooperation initiatives.


The TRACECA project complements the EU’s action in the context of other programmes, such as Taiex and the Twinning projects.
