In order to regulate the safety of aerodromes for the public civil use, the Civil Aviation Authority of the Republic of Kosovo approves the aerodromes under Regulation No. 3/2012 on Approved Aerodromes, and in accordance with the standards of Annex 14 of the Chicago Convention.
According to this regulation the term “aerodrome” includes heliports, airfields, and gliding fields. All aerodromes in which the annual traffic does not exceed 10,000 passengers per year or have less than 850 aircraft movements per year for transportation of goods, must be approved by the CAA.
The basic conditions to be met for approval of an aerodrome are described in detail in Regulation No. 3/2012 on Approved Aerodromes.
