Armenian Civil Aviation Committee denies rumors of making  difficulties to "Pobeda" Russian low-cost airline on flights to  Yerevan

ArmInfo. The Civil Aviation Committee of Armenia has denied rumors of puting up obstacles by the head of the department Tetevik Revazyan regarding the Russian Pobeda low-cost airline on flights to Yerevan.

According to the press service of the Committee, such reports by a  number of media outlets are not true.  Moreover, the source  continued, the Committee did not receive applications from Pobeda  Airlines for flights to the capital of Armenia. There are also no  applications through diplomatic channels on the appointment by the  Russian aviation authorities of an air carrier for flights to Yerevan  from any Russian city. The Committee still has not received official  notification of the termination of flights by Pobeda Airlines in the  autumn-winter period 2019-2020.

To recall, on August 6, Pobeda announced that it had suspended the  sale of tickets for flights from Moscow to Gyumri (Armenia) for the  winter period. It is noted that the sale of tickets has stopped due  to problems with the fuel tanker at the Gyumri airport. The matter,  in particular, concerned the underfilling of fuel.  Meanwhile, the  Advisor to the Prime Minister of Armenia Hakob Jagaryan believes that  the claims of the Russian air carrier are unfounded. According to  him, Pobeda intends to launch flights to Yerevan, but would like to  receive the same benefits as RyanAir Airlines.
