Kazakhstan intends to tighten punishment for smoking in airplanes

Tightening punishment for smoking on board an aircraft may take place in Kazakhstan, Tengrinews.kz reports.

This opinion was expressed by the Minister for Investment and Development Zhennis Kassymbek during the discussion of the draft law “To Ratify the Convention for the Suppression of Unlawful Acts against International Civil Aviation” in the Kazakh Parliament.

During the discussion of this bill, the Kazakh PMs asked the Minister if there were any changes in Kazakhstan toughening punishment for people violating the ban on smoking on board an aircraft.

“Indeed, the international practice to prevent such violations in aircraft is different: we adopted amendments to the aviation legislation 2-3 years ago, we toughened measures against such violators – this is 15 days or a fine of 20 MCI. This is a commensurate punishment and adequate to many similar measures that other aviation authorities are using nowadays. We are actively considering issues of tightening with airlines now, perhaps we will make proposals for toughening,” Mr. Kassymbek answered the question.
