Kazakh Airline Reform

ALMATY, Kazakhstan () -- A government group has been set up to reform Kazakhstan's state-owned airline, which is plagued by financial problems, an official said Tuesday.

First Deputy Prime Minister Nigmatzhan Isingarin said the group, which he is heading, will submit proposals in March.

Kazakhstan Airlines has accumulated a debt of about 700 million Kazakh tenge ($10.7 million), which makes it difficult for the company even to buy fuel, said Cholpon Tabayeva of the State Anti-Monopoly Committee.
