A Euro-Mediterranean Aviation Agreement was signed on 15 December 2010.
This agreement provides for the abolition of all restrictions on capacity and frequency between the two parties. Beyond market opening, the agreement also provides a modern framework and high standards for a wide range of aviation issues, such as passenger rights, air traffic management, economic regulation, competition issues or social aspects.
As a result of the agreement, Jordan's legislation will be progressively aligned with European standards in areas such as aviation safety, security, environment, consumer protection, air traffic management, competition issues and social aspects.
It thereby delivers mutual benefits, provides a platform to take EU-Jordan aviation relations to a new level and serves to build an ambitious – both broad and deep – aviation partnership.
A horizontal agreement was previously signed in 2008.
