The Chairman of the Duma Committee on physical culture, sport, tourism and youth Affairs Sergei Krivonosov proposes legislation to establish the liability of operators in case of bankruptcy of airlines and refusal of passengers.

The company «VIM-Avia» on Monday officially admitted that it did not have the finances to continue the work. With the problems faced tens of thousands of customers «VIM-Avia» both in Russia and abroad. Transporting passengers under the control of the Ministry of transport and the Federal air transport Agency has joined other airlines. The transportation of passengers by scheduled flights «VIM-Avia» will be accepted until 15 October from 16 October to cease.

«I believe that by law must be prescribed some sort of responsibility of tour operators, including because they are decide to involve in the transportation of the airline,» said Krivonosov at the meeting of the Duma Committee on physical culture, sport, tourism and youth Affairs, which discussed the situation with the «VIM-Avia».

He also supported the idea of the head of the Federal tourism Agency Oleg Safonov on the establishment of funds for protection of passengers in case of airline bankruptcies.

«We must take all necessary measures, to such (a situation like with «VIM-Avia») doesn’t happen again. I believe that Oleg Petrovich (Safonov — head of the Federal tourism Agency) correctly says about the Foundation and necessary that we with the whole Committee thought, what adjustments should be made so that the carriers could not engage in this activity without establishing a Fund,» he added.

According to Krivonosov, it is also necessary to raise the issue of expanding the powers of the Federal tourism Agency, «and ideally schedule in the near future the question of the establishment of the Ministry of tourism».
