ARMENIAN GOVERNMENT RAISES THE NECESSITY OF HAVING NATIONAL AIRLINES
The Government of Armenia has raised the necessity of having national airlines. This has been reported by Suren Papikyan, Minister of Territorial Administration and Development, during the Parliament committee hearings of 2019 Government Budget expenditures on June 10th.

He mentioned that a two-year timeframe is sufficient time to form the respective substructure which will allow local airlines to operate in the market. The Minister referred to the European Commission decision to ban flights of Armenian airlines to EU zone, and mentioned that those accountable can and should be found, however the awareness of the issue is far more important. He noted that proposals for the vision of the development of the Country's Civil Aviation are being worked on. Currently, the RA Civil Aviation Committee, as part of the Ministry of the Territorial Administration and Development, is working on a large volume of proposals which are aimed at realization of respective actions.
