The first round of EU-Moldovan negotiations on a Common Aviation Area agreement, on 27-28 July 2011 in Chisinau, brought together representatives of the Moldovan Government, the EU and its Member States. A press release from the EU Delegation to Moldova said the future agreement was expected “to lead to increased frequency of flights, greater safety for the traveling public and higher environmental protection standards.”

 
The agreement will see Moldova gradually adhering to EU aviation rules and regulations, opening up its market and integrating into the European aviation structures, the press release said, adding: “The agreement will also aim at enhancing technical co-operation and provide a business-friendly environment for the commercial operators.”
 
The Common Aviation Area agreement will further promote aviation links, which will bring concrete benefits to the consumers, to the aviation industry and the overall economic development,” according to the  press release.
