Almaty hosted the 2nd round table of airline executives from Central Asia (CA), including Air Astana, QAZAQ Air and SCAT (Kazakhstan), AviaTraffic (Kyrgyzstan), Somon Air (Tajikistan) and AZAL (Azerbaijan), as well as representatives of IATA (International Air Transport Association). The participants discussed the prospects for the development of aviation, the strategy and legal framework of the European Union for air traffic, airport fees and passenger data systems API-PNR. It is reported by press service of the Ministry of Industry and Infrastructural Development.

During the round table, the Kazakh aviation authorities presented a new approach to regulating the industry for the first time in the CIS countries with the creation of the Aviation Administration of Kazakhstan JSC, which IATA representatives and aviation experts gave a positive assessment, noting that Kazakhstan is the first among the States of Central Asia to implement such an approach. The meeting participants also noted the introduction of the "Open sky" mode in the main airports of Kazakhstan as a positive moment in the development of civil aviation in Central Asia.

During the round table, the airlines emphasized that safety is a top priority for the aviation community and joint efforts are needed to achieve the highest level of safety. In particular, the IOSA audit is an important program that provides higher safety standards for airlines, and regulators should consider the audit as an important program for improving flight safety. Airlines advocate effective competition in the supply of aviation fuel at airports. To this end, it is proposed to introduce rules that encourage effective competition at airports through open and non-discriminatory access to the market of aviation fuel suppliers for the supply and sale of aviation fuel to airlines at airports. Open access will increase free and fair competition, which in turn will lead to lower prices and higher service levels.

In addition, the issues of strengthening cooperation between the aviation community and the authorities of the European Union were considered, which will improve communication and achieve common goals in aviation, using best practices and knowledge. Increased engagement with a wide range of aviation stakeholders, including airlines, airports, governments and their agencies, and international organizations, adds value to all parties involved.
