Open Skies policy. State should support domestic airlines in Kyrgyzstan

After adoption of amendments to the Air Code, domestic airlines found themselves in a difficult situation. Representative of Air Manas airline, Daniyar Arynov, told at a round table discussion.

According to him, governments of all countries support their domestic aviation, providing various benefits.

«We would like to be supported, exempted from customs duties, taxes, fees in respect of aircraft. Such a scheme works in Uzbekistan and many countries of the Eurasian Economic Union,» Daniyar Arynov said.

Representative of the company stressed that the aviation industry has come to the extreme line, after which it would be difficult to recover it.

«The law has been signed. Therefore, it makes no sense to talk about its intricacies, we need to talk about state support of the aviation industry,» he stated.

Recall, on January 15, the President of Kyrgyzstan Sooronbai Jeenbekov signed the law on Amendments to the Air Code of Kyrgyzstan, which confirmed the country’s commitment to the Open Skies policy.
