ArmInfo. The implementation of the "Open Sky" policy resulted in an increase in the frequency of flights from the airports of Armenia "Zvartnots" and "Shirak". This was stated by the head of the Civil Aviation Department of Armenia Sergey Avetisyan during a round table in the Russian-Armenian (Slavonic) University. According to him, at present 25-30 flights a day are carried out in Armenia. Only in 2017, 2,553 million passengers used the services of two airports in the country, which is 20.6% higher than in 2016. Unfortunately, Avetisyan continued, the air transportation market in Armenia is not sufficiently diversified so that it would be possible to carry out more flights to various countries of the world. The Head of the Central Administration of the State Archives added that a significant growth of cargo air transportation was registered. At the Yerevan airport "Zvartnots", their volumes last year amounted to 22, 3 thousand tons, which is 22.1% higher than the figures of the previous year. Avetisyan also reported on the research on the possibility of using more than 30 airfields built in Soviet times, of which 5 have been selected. Currently, work is being done on drawing up estimates for their modernization and attracting investments. In particular, as the head of the GDCA noted, in June, Kapan airport will be ready for operation, where works are currently being carried out on the asphalting of the runway. There is a high probability that small aircraft will be used when using these airports. The head of the GDCA and the agreement signed on November 24, 2017 with the European Union touched upon, including, among other things, the formation of a common aviation space. "This agreement will allow the Armenian airlines to use the EU internal market without restrictions, and the airlines from the EU countries - the opportunities of Armenia to enter the markets of third countries," said the head of the department.
