The Greek parliament plenary ratified on Wednesday the European Union-Armenia Common Aviation Area Agreement by a large majority, with only the Communist Party of Greece voting against it.

Voting for the bill tabled by the Infrastructure & Transport Ministry was the ruling New Democracy, main opposition SYRIZA, PASOK, Greek Solution, Spartiates, Nea Aristera, and Niki. Voting against it was the Communist Party of Greece, while Plefsi Eleftherias voted 'present'.

The agreement aims for the gradual opening of the market for direct flights for all EU and Armenian airlines between the two, providing a regulatory framework and setting out standards for a wide range of aviation issues with which Armenian law will be gradually aligned.
