Relations between Russia and the EU are playing today an important role not only for Euro-Asian region, but also for the world economy as well. The role of air transport in this process cannot be overestimated. As the lifeblood of the global economy, the fastest way to travel in many cases determines the dynamics of the economic and political developments of the world. This is true for Europe and Russia.

However EU-Russian aviation dialogue, completely blocked for last five years is recovering at a very slow rate. As years before, policy of restrictions and limitations governs ASAs, seriously aggravating difficult life of Russian and European airlines who were elbowing most of the last decade through permanent chain of crises. Moreover, unsolved problems negatively affect political climate, overshadowing relations between Russia and EU, historical neighbors, major trade and cultural partners.

The third EU-Russia Air Transport Dialogue: Today and Tomorrow conference, to be held only several weeks after the first «ministerial» EU-Russia Aviation Summit planed in Saint Petersburg this autumn, provides an excellent platform for EU and Russian officials, airlines, airportss, as well as other players of the air transport market to discuss the key issues of air transport development in our region.

Where would «experimental» bi-lateral talks on ASA between Russian CAA and CAAs of selected EU member states lead? What would be an actual result of infringement process initiated by European Commission against 11 EU member states on the basis that their respective ASAs with Russia did not comply with EU law? What form will take Russian countermeasures to implementation of EU ETS? How would the whole European ETS project affect international air transport? When will be Siberian overflight payments removed and what will be after that?

The conference held at the end of this important year will search answers to these and other questions, contribute to the dialogue between EU and Russian authorities, give an opportunity to all market players to deliver their vision of the future of air transport in Russia and Europe.
Who should attend:

Civil aviation authorities and law makers from Russia and European Union, regulatory and government officials, representatives of ministries, federal agencies and services, senior management of airlines, airports and air traffic control organizations, professional association experts, industry suppliers, service providers, financiers and investors, market analysts and specialist media from the EU and Russia.
