The Finnish Government proposes to the Finnish Parliament that the protocol on amending the air transport agreement between Finland and Russia be ratified. The amendments aim to remove legal limitations on air traffic competition between the two countries.

An essential goal of this amendment is to have the air transport agreement between Finland and Russia meet the obligations of EU legislation.

According to the agreement amended with the protocol, a company that operates between Russia and Finland no longer needs to be in Finnish ownership.
