Astana, Kazakhstan, July 28

By Daniyar Mukhtarov - Trend:

Kazakhstan's Ministry of Transport and Communications intends to improve the legislation in the sphere of transport and tourism activities, the deputy chairman of the country's Civil Aviation Committee, Talgat Lastaev told reporters on July 28.

"The working group held a meeting, during which it discussed the possibility of extending the validity of the permission for flights from one to six months initiated by the tourism sector," Lastaev said.

He went on to add that the draft law will be submitted for registration at the Justice Ministry a month later.

The negligent activities of the tour operators with respect to the clients, which have become more frequent, increased the importance of making amendments to the law.

The meeting was attended by the representatives of the Civil Aviation Committee, KAZLOGISTICS Union of Transport Workers of Kazakhstan, National Chamber of entrepreneurs, tour operators, the Committee of Tourism Industry, the International Air Transport Association (IATA), AirAstana and Scat airlines, as well as the transport prosecutor's office.
