ARMAVIA TO BUY TWO AIRBUSES MORE
Jul 27, 2007
YEREVAN, JULY 27, ARMENPRESS: Armenia’s biggest air carrier Armavia
said today it will buy next April two brand new Airbus aircrafts from
the France-based company.
Armavia owner Mikhail Baghdasarov told a news conference the purchase
will be ‘another step on the road to meeting European requirements."
He said the carrier has reported a 27 percent surge in the number
of transported passengers this year. The next move, he said, will
be setting up a joint company with Belgium’s Sabena Technique for
maintenance and overhaul of aircrafts in Armenia.
Baghdasarov said the company that owns now seven aircrafts, plans
new flights to China and Japan. He said Armavia is prepared to launch
also the Yerevan-Los Angeles-Yerevan flights and is waiting for this
issue to be settled by the governments in Yerevan and Washington.
