European Union reached agreement Friday with 10 neighboring countries to work toward establishment of a European Common Aviation Area by 2010 that would comprise 35 nations and more than 500 million people. Eight non-EU nations in Southeast Europe, including Albania, Bulgaria, Croatia and Romania, signed what the EU called a "political agreement" to create a single aviation market encompassing most of the European continent. Iceland and Norway also signed the accord. The EU said it will sponsor more than 30 workshops and study visits throughout the Balkan region this year aimed at determining common standards for safety, security, competition rules and consumer rights. "This harmonization of standards, especially in the fields of aviation safety and security, will ensure that the public's growing demand for air services is met adequately," the EU said in a statement.
