European Union - Republic of Korea Aviation Partnership Project (APP)

What is the EU-ROK APP?

The European Union - Republic of Korea Aviation Partnership Project (EU-ROK APP) started on 20 December 2021, date of the signature of a Letter of Intent establishing a cooperation framework between the EU and the ROK in various domains of civil aviation safety.​

The project is expected to run until 31 March 2024 and will explore possible areas of exchanges, including latest aviation trends and technologies.

The EU-ROK APP facilitates closer cooperation between the EU and ROK at an official, authority and industry levels. This is reflected in the project’s objective of enhancing the partnership between the EU and ROK in the civil aviation domain.

The project implies a close cooperation between EASA and various European stakeholders to bring best European aviation expertise to the project. Likewise on the side of the ROK, the project interacts with Korean stakeholders coordinated by MOLIT.

Hosted by EASA, EUROCONTROL, SESAR3  JU, and DSNA (French ANSP), a delegation of 8 representatives from the Republic of Korea (ROK) will visit Europe from 12-16 December, to exchange experience and insights on the subjects of Air Traffic Flow Management (ATFM) and Trajectory Based Operations (TBO). It is the first time that a delegation from ROK, consisting of representatives of the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport (MOLIT) as well as of the Korea Aerospace Research Institute (KARI) and the Korea Institute of Aviation Safety Technology​ (KIAST), visits Europe under the recently established EU-ROK APP.

The visit is intended to achieve a better understanding of the respective EU and ROK ATFM systems, plans and initiatives,and facilitate exchange of latest technologies, operational concepts, and procedures related to ATFM.
