Giumry’s reconstructed airport "Shirak" will be put in commission
on November 19, as planned, Civil Aviation General Department press
secretary, Gayane Davtyan, told Panorama.am. In her words, the airport
will make flights to newly independent states.
"Regular flights will be made to Rostov, Moscow, Minvodi, Krasnoday,"
