The Ministry of Infrastructure of Ukraine has allocated 58 thousand euros for the certification of the airport "Uzhgorod".
Without certification it is impossible to restore the full-fledged operation of the airport.
"Certification will be carried out by the European Agency for the Safety of Aircraft EASA, its absence - the main reason why it is impossible to restore the full operation of the International Airport Uzhhorod," said Gennady Moskal, head of the Transcarpathian Regional State Administration.
Uzhgorod airport is the only Ukrainian airport, which uses the airspace of Slovakia to take off and land an aircraft. The latter is a member of the EU and organizes air traffic according to the requirements of EASA.
