The EU - South Asia APP

About the

EU - South Asia APP

Over the next 20 years, South Asia’s air traffic is forecast to have the highest growth rate in the world. This provides a significant challenge in the fields of safety oversight, capacity development and environmental protection. In this context, the EU-South Asia Aviation Partnership Project aims to:


  • Enhance relations between South Asian and European institutions in the field of civil aviation

  • Increase technical exchanges between the South Asian and European aviation industries

  • Support South Asia in developing its capacity for safety oversight

  • Improve the environmental performance of the South Asian aviation sector
