GYUMRI, OCTOBER 26, ARMENPRESS: The airport in Armenia’s second largest
town of Gyumri will resume operation on November 19. Artyom Movsisian,
head of the government-affiliated Civil Aviation Department, said the
repair of its runway and other auxiliary facilities will be over by
November 12.

The airport was handed to a concessional management of the Armenia
International Airports, which also runs the biggest Zvartnots airport
in Yerevan. It was said to have invested about $10 million in upgrading
the Gyumri airport.

Movsisyan said after the repair the airport in Gyumri can claim the
first class certification. The airport in Gyumri called Shirak will
be used as a reserve airport for European carriers instead of the
airport in Georgia’s Tbilisi.

The airport will operate regular flights to several Russian cities,
including Moscow.
