The Myanmar government is laying plans to draft a law for the Myanmar Airport Authority, said Union Minister for Transport U Nyan Tun Aung at the meeting of the Department of Civil Aviation (DCA) in Yangon on 28 November.
“Myanmar needs to build the Hanthawady International Airport to be an international gateway for the country,” he said, adding that officials of the (DCA) should observe the operations of aviation and airport authorities of other countries.
The director-general of the department reported on the installation of aviation communication machinery and navigation system devices, the issuance of air operation certificates and pilot licences, the upgrading of Putao, Myitkyina, Kalay, Heho, Sittway, Thandwe, Kyaukpyu, Manaung, Loikaw, Cocogyun and Myeik airports.
The union minister inspected use of navigation machinery for aviation at the central aviation control station of the Yangon International Airport after meeting with air traffic controllers.
He also met with the chief executive officer and other officials of Myanmar National Airlines.
