The Civil Aviation Agency under the Ministry of Transport and Roads of Kyrgyzstan has found itself a new head after a period of about two weeks without a director. Reports show that the Kyrgyz prime minister, Sooronbay Jeenbekov, has named Kurmanbek Akyshev for the post.

Akyshev, 58, has worked in several high positions in Manas Internation Airport, a body which operates all airports within the country.

In an interview with Russian Aviation Insider, Ermek Omuraliev, the former head of the Civil Aviation Agency who resigned in mid-October as per his own wishes, said that he is prepared to help Akyshev in every way possible, and mentioned that one of the current goals of the agency is to “remove the Kyrgyz Republic from the EU’s blacklist,” in which the country has been included since 2006.

According to Omuraliev, the Kyrgyz Minister of Transport and Roads, Zamirbek Aidarov, offered him to become his advisor.
