Aviation sector seeing upgrades soon

By M.ZOLJARGAL

The Civil Aviation Authority of Mongolia is set to hold a consultation session, “Aviation Sector Reform 2013″ today, to report on current development projects, and consult on prospective upgrades and reforms to the sector. Mongolia is the second largest landlocked country in the world, and therefore, the aviation sector is believed to be an inseparable part of the advancement of Mongolia’s international trade, investment, and tourism industry.

In Mongolia, ten aviation companies are now operating and 51 airplanes are registered, 33 of which have flight operation permits.

The Mongolian aviation sector has seen much development in recent years, connected to mining and tourism, and aviation companies are increasing their capacities accordingly. This year, the total number of passengers and freight rose by 23.1 percent compared to the same period of last year. The number of flights exceeded 100,000 for the first time in 2012, and Chinggis Khaan International Airport served 1.2 million passengers. In 2012, 82,000 airplanes passed through Mongolia and provided 45.2 billion MNT for the State Fund.

Though several advancements have been seen, more reforms and upgrades are crucial to the success of the Mongolian aviation sector.
