COLOGNE, GERMANYThe European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), and Korea's Civil Aviation Ministry signed a Letter of Intent to strengthen technical cooperation in the field of civil aviation.

The agreement marks an important milestone in fostering EASA’s relations with Asian authorities and, in particular, will offer European aviation stakeholders new opportunities to get to know better an important economic player in the region.

The agreement outlines the terms of implementation of the Aviation Partnership Project (EU-ROK APP), which forms part of an EU-funded program running until March 31, 2024. The program's aim is to enhance and strengthen the partnership between the European Union and North Asian countries in the domain of civil aviation.

Following the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between EASA and MOLIT from 2019, the agreement further reinforces the partnership between EASA and MOLIT. It sets the frame and principles of cooperation in a wide range of domains such as:

  • Airworthiness
  • Air Operations
  • Air Traffic Management (ATM)
  • Aviation Safety
  • Sustainable Aviation
  • Aviation Security
  • Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAS) and Urban Air Mobility (UAM)
