ArmInfo. Vladikavkaz-Yerevan direct regular flights might be launched in the near future. According to Region Online, the confessor of Ossetia discussed the launch of the flights during his visit in Armenia.
As Bishop of Alania and Vladikavkaz Leonid noted during his working visit to Armenia, the flight will be in highly demand, as nearly 20 thousand Armenians live in Northern Ossetia.
As the head of the press office of the General Department of Civil Aviation (GDCA) Satenik Hovhannisyan told ArmInfo, the aviation regulator of Armenia hasn't received any relevant application yet. At the same time, the GDCA noted that the negotiations with various air companies on expansion of the destinations and enlargement of the list of companies are still going on. However, referring to a commercial secret, the GDCA hasn't named the new players of the air service market.
To note, the visit of the Ossetian confessor took place last week. Catholicos of All Armenians Karekin II received Bishop Leonid.
