Priority international air routes, proposed for subsidies from the republican budget, in accordance with legal procedure, are integrated into budget application by authorized agency in the field of civil aviation, submitted to the authorized agency for budget planning when formulating the republican budget for the relevant financial year.
In order to receive budget subsidies between the administrator of the relevant budget program and the airline, having a valid certificate for a subsidized air route, a contract for aviation fuel budget subsidizing is concluded for priority international air routes.
Budget subsidies are paid monthly in quantities of allocated funds, according to the financing plan of the approved budget program.
