Burma to Get National Aviation Policy by 2014: Officials
1 August 2013
Burma will likely have a national aviation policy by next year, Channel News Asia reports. Burma’s Department of Civil Aviation told the International Air Transport Association (IATA) that it was drafting the policy, as the country attempts to become a Southeast Asian aviation hub, the news agency reported. The IATA has urged Burma to consider traffic growth and personnel training. The deputy director general of the Department of Civil Aviation said authorities were also attempting to boost the reputation of local airlines, after Myanmar Airways planes skidded off a runway and overshot a runway in the past two months.
