Vice-President Antonio Tajani said: “The agreement signed today is good news for Indian and EU airlines and passengers as it removes the legal uncertainty from the bilateral air services agreements. But equally important, it represents a very significant step forward in strengthening our relations with India and in opening up new areas of cooperation.
“India is an important partner for Europe and is one of the world’s fastest growing aviation markets. Th e EU and India have much to gain from closer cooperation in this sector. This agreement is a further tangible result of the EUIndia strategic partnership. I expect the cooperation in aviation to deepen much further in the coming years in a range of areas such as regulatory and technicalcooperation.”
