Ukrainian CAA Representatives to Attend Routes CIS

July 22, 2013 Conferences No Comments Email Email

It has never been more important to understand the Ukraine market with negotiations on the EU-Ukraine open skies agreement in its final stage. Ukraine is a huge market opportunity but for many carriers there have been some restrictions to the many prospects which should soon become available.

The market potential is enormous with a population of over 45 million and a growing economy and these opportunities will be available to all carriers attending this year’s Routes CIS event where a strong attendee list includes not only the major carriers from the region and beyond but also the real decision makers and political figures from Ukraine.

Routes CIS is the only route development forum for the entire CIS region and the 2013 event, which will take place on 21-23 July, will be hosted by International Airport Donetsk Sergey Prokofiev. Taking place at the Shakhtar Plaza Hotel, the largest hotel in Donetsk, the event is expected to attract around 250 air service decision makers from across the CIS region.

“Route development is one of the main priorities, not only in the development strategy of our airport but also for regional and state policy of the aviation segment modernisation,” says Kirill Osypov, Director General of

International Airport Donetsk Sergey Prokofiev continuing: “I am sure that hosting Routes CIS 2013 will be one of the steps in our development strategy realisation. We appreciate the trust expressed in us by the organisers of the event and we consider it a big honour and responsibility to host Routes CIS and welcome the aviation industry as a whole.”

Nigel Mayes, VP Commercial-Routes, UBM Live commented: “As the negotiations on the EU-Ukraine Joint Aviation Area are in the final stages there has been no better time to attend Routes CIS and visit Ukraine. Once confirmed the Joint Aviation Area will open up a massive new target market of almost 50 million people as the population of Ukraine enters the EU marketplace. Routes CIS provides the perfect opportunity for International Airport Donetsk to showcase their city and region to the aviation community as we expect to welcome a record number of delegates to the event.”

Routes CIS, which is now in its third year, will see attendance from senior representatives of the Ukrainian aviation industry including Volodymyr Kozak, Minister of Infrastructure of Ukraine, Konstantin Yefimenko, First Deputy of Minister of Infrastructure of Ukraine, Dmytro Dimidovich, Deputy of Minister of Infrastructure of Ukraine, Anatoliy Kolesnik, Head of Civil Aviation of Ukraine and Oleksandr Grechko, First Deputy Head of Civil Aviation of Ukraine.
