Egis Avia continues to provide support to promote safety, security and environment of Civil Aviation in the Transport Corridor Europe-Caucasus-Asia (TRACECA).
The TRACECA programme (Transport Corridor Europe Central Asia) was initiated in 1993 by the European Commission with an aim to stimulate cooperation among participants' countries and to promote their integration into the global economy.
In 2009, Egis Avia had been selected as project leader by EuropeAid - the cooperation office of the European Commission - to conduct the TRACECA Civil Aviation Safety and Security project in Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kirghizstan, Moldavia, Tajikistan, Ukraine and Uzbekistan.
The first phase of this 3-year project will be achieved early 2012. The programme successfully implemented technical training sessions and provided technical assistance to aviation authorities and air operators of the beneficiary countries.
In order to further proceed with these objectives, the European Commission initiates a second phase of the TRACECA Civil Aviation project with a purpose to:
- Promote a convergence plan towards the European sky project for countries in the European neighbourhood;
- Continue to provide aviation authorities with improved assistance in security.
The project team will be based in Kiev and will be formed by a Team Leader and two long-term experts. Many short-term experts will also provide their expertise.
For this new contract, Egis Avia is the prime contractor of a consortium formed with DGAC (FR), ENAC (FR), AVSEC (UK), ECORYS (NL), AMEC (UK) and St Petersburg State University of Civil Aviation (RU).
