Egis continues support for 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 was 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 three-year project will end in 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 will initiate a second phase of the TRACECA Civil Aviation project in order to:
– Promote convergence towards the European Single 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.
Egis will be the prime contractor of a consortium formed with French CAA DGAC (FR), ENAC (FR), AVSEC (UK), ECORYS (NL), AMEC (UK) and St Petersburg State University of Civil Aviation (RU).
