Armenia partly agrees with commission’s conclusions on A320 crash
Yerevan does not fully agree with the conclusions of the Interstate
Aviation Committee on the causes of the May 3 crash of an Armavia
A320 aircraft near Sochi.
"We agree that the human factor played its role. However, we do not
think this is the final result," head of Armenian civil aviation
Artyom Movsesian told journalists on Friday.
Armenia considers necessary to continue an unbiased investigation of
reasons behind the crash of the airbus, he said. "We tried not to
interfere into the work of the Interstate Aviation Commission all
this time. However, they claim that the existing data is enough to
elaborate the causes of the crash. We think these are preliminary
results," Movsesian said.
"The question of whether any of the crew was suffering from health
problems or other possible factors still remains unanswered," he
The crash killed eight crew members and 105 passengers.
