Slovak skies to widen for air carriers from EU

THE SLOVAK civil aviation market will become more accessible to air carriers registered in EU member countries, the news wire SITA wrote.

According to the draft amendment to the civil aviation law, which should harmonise Slovak air transport legislation with EU norms, foreign carriers will no longer be obliged to apply for registration in Slovakia. They will only need to submit certificates from the country where they are registered. Tariffs will also be adjusted within the European communities.

The revision to the civil aviation law, which the Slovak cabinet approved on Wednesday, should become effective on September 1, 2004.

The draft amendment to the civil aviation law will also enable private individuals to test the professional skills of air transport staff and provide training up to the level of private pilots. European institutions and inspectors from the Ministry of Transport will also be entitled to carry out tests after obtaining permission from the state professional supervisory body.

The amendment suggests that government flights should also be, to a certain extent, under civil aviation law.
