Agreement between South Korea and the European Commission has been suspended 'indefinitely' just days after it was announced that South Korea was set to become the third country later this month to receive security approval
for all its passengers to transfer freely within the EU without fear of LAGs' confiscations.
The European Travel Retail Council (ETRC) says that it is very disappointed to learn that the agreement has been suspended 'indefinitely' despite being published in the official EU journal under Regulation (EC) 915/2007.
The ETRC says that it has been informed that the suspension of this 'approval' has been caused by some difficulties related to bilateral negotiations between the EU and South Korea on aviation matters.
The ETRC said its best hope now is that the matter can be resolved as quickly as possible.
