ASTANA – Juan Carlos Salazar, the Secretary-General of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), recognized Kazakhstan’s progress in achieving 84 percent compliance with the ICAO requirements in 2021 on Oct.1, reported the press service of Kazakhstan’s Civil Aviation Committee.
The committee’s chair Talgat Lastayev met with Salazar at the 41 ICAO Assembly to speak about the measures taken to improve flight safety in Kazakhstan. The secretary-general praised the country’s implementation of the European model of civil aviation regulation, citing it as one of the most effective systems in the world.
