The Union Cabinet of India has approved the signing of a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Poland for the promotion of the civil aviation cooperation.

The agreement will promote and encourage mutual cooperation in several areas. Any legal and procedural issues that may adversely affect cooperation between the two nations will be reviewed.

To continue for a period of five years, the MoU will recognise the mutual benefit of cooperation in the field of civil aviation, particularly in establishing and improving regional air connectivity in India.

In addition, both the countries will recognise the mutual benefits of environmental testing, flight simulators monitoring, aircraft maintenance facilities, maintenance personnel, and aircrew members.

“India and Poland will exchange information and expertise between their respective ministries and Civil Aviation Authorities (CAA) related to aviation regulations.”

The MoU will focus on research collaboration and studies on aviation safety, as well as conducting training programmes.

In addition, India and Poland will exchange information and expertise between their respective ministries and Civil Aviation Authorities (CAA) related to aviation regulations, regional air operations, airworthiness requirements, and safety standards to improve safety and security of air transport.

The agreement will see the organisation of conferences and professional seminars, workshops, and talks.

Regular dialogue or meetings for exchange of information, knowledge, expertise, and experiences will also be conducted between the ministries.
