Working Arrangement with EASA Signed
On 25 March 2022, Frontex and the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) signed a working arrangement to establish a framework for closer cooperation between the two agencies.
Under the arrangement, the agencies will exchange operational experience. Furthermore, they may conduct joint capacity building and training related to Frontex’s use of aircraft in its surveillance activities. EASA is enabled to assist Frontex in the selection of best providers and equipment, as well as in monitoring the safety of the operations of Frontex aircraft, including unmanned aircraft.
