The Round Table series will be a unique opportunity to discuss the local and regional issues that limit the development of aviation in the region and how airlines, governments and a broad range of stakeholders can work together to improve the regulatory environment in the Central Asian countries to accelerate the growth of air transport.
The main items addressed during the day will be:
- An overview of the current benefits of aviation in the area and the economic outlook for the upcoming years, as well as regional impediments for future growth;
- Smarter Regulations and its application in the Central Asian countries;
- Safety aspects, such as the inclusion of the IATA Operation Safety Audit (IOSA) into a national regulatory mandate and Performance-based Navigation programs;
- Fuel supply stability and analysis of user charges in the region.
Currently we have CEOs and other top management of Air Astana, Somon Air, SCAT, Qazaq Air Uzbekistan Airways and Avia Traffic, all confirming their attendance.
