In its strategy the government of Armenia has chosen the way of
the stage-by-stage liberalization of the air traffic market, deputy
chief of CAGB, Aram Marutyan, said at today’s session of Armenia’s
Public Council.

He said that in 2008 they signed a “horizontal agreement” with the
EU, where the points on liberalization of the air traffic market were
fixed. At present, we have been negotiating with the EU on offering
of more favorable conditions to the Armenian air companies, he said
and added that such conditions may affect much development of the
civil aviation of the country, as they will give an opportunity of
using the European air area.

Touching on the relations between “Armavia” and “Zvartnots” airport,
Marutyan said that CAGB used to take attempts for settlement of
the conflict between them. The last negotiations resulted in a
compromise solution, according to which the air company was given
some privileges. As for the air fuel problem, he said that in this
matter the airport is guided by the points of the agreement made with
the government of the country.

To note, Armavia air company has started the bankruptcy proceedings
since 1 April 2013 and stopped all the flights. The total debt of the
air company to the state amounted to 6,9 bln drams plus more than 12
bln drams of fines. Moreover, Armavia owed $35 mln to banks as well
as to “Zvartnots” airport and navigation services of Russia.

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
