Under the terms of the agreement, Iceland will be able to participate in the tasks and activities of Eurocontrol and also be present as an observer in the decision-making and working groups.
Brennan commented: “I am delighted to be signing this agreement which is an important step towards the integration of Iceland as Eurocontrol’s 42nd member state on 1 January 2025. We have been working closely with Iceland for many years and welcome its decision to join Eurocontrol and take on all the rights and obligations of our member states.” (cj)
