On June 6, the Standing Committee on Economy supported discussing a draft revision of the Law on Civil Aviation Law, which was submitted by the government on May 25. 

Minister of Road and Transport Development S.Byambatsogt informed that the bill has 10 chapters and 51 articles. In the bill, the control, regulation, functions and operation of civil aviation are included in accordance with the Model Civil Aviation Safety Act recommended by the International Civil Aviation Organization. 

The draft revision provides for new economic regulations aimed at developing competitive air transport and protecting the interests of passengers. Considering that the current law only regulates the aircraft owned by the carrier, it is considered appropriate to regulate the operation of many types of aircraft, and the relevant regulations are included in the bill, Minister S.Byambatsogt said. 

In the bill, the regulation of airports under various conditions of use and various types of ownership, service operations that ensure flight safety and the unity of air traffic, and state regulation are newly reflected.

Air navigation services in Mongolia’s airspace are provided by state-owned legal entities certified by civil aviation rules, according to the bill. 

The bill sponsors believe that by approving the bill, the safety, efficiency and accessibility of civil aviation operations in Mongolia will increase, aviation safety will be improved, investment and competition will grow, and a legal framework will be created to optimize and upgrade the structure and organization of the industry.
