The European Parliament adopted, Wednesday in a plenary session, the extension of the air agreement between Morocco and the European Union to Bulgaria and Romania, thereby extending the Open sky agreement to all EU member states.
The agreement was adopted by an overwhelming majority of 623 votes out of 688.
No changes were made to the content of the agreement, apart from the technical and linguistic adaptations, introduced following the accession of Bulgaria and Romania to the European Union.
The air agreement between Morocco and the EU covers both the opening of markets and the approximation of the two parties’ aviation laws. It also contains provisions in terms of bilateral investments on both sides.
Morocco was the first non-European country to sign the Open Sky agreement with the EU in 2005.
