Taron Avia is not afraid of the competition with Russian air carriers

ArmInfo. Taron Avia air company,  previously implemented cargo flights and  passenger  maintaining  charter flights outside Armenia, is not afraid of competition with  Russian air lines, taing a decision to start  from April 25  the  implementation of regular flights from Gyumri to  Krasnodar,  Rostov-On-Don and Samara. And starting from June the Company plans  also to deal with Gyumri-Sopchi and Gyumri-Moscow flights. 

According to Garnik Papikyan, the Director General of the Company,  all the air fleet of te air carrier, which will comprise three  Boeing-737-500, will be based at  Shirak airport of Gyumri. For the  first period only one craft, named after Armenian actor Mher  Mkrtchyan, will be operated. Currently the plane is under technical  maintenance in Jordan. The flights will be implemented twice a week .  The flight tickets  from Gyumri to Krasnodar will cost EUR 75, and  the  back flight will cost UER 60 with up to 25 +7 kg  free of charge  cargo service. The flights to Rostov and Samara are planned once in a  week , but the tariff rates for those are not set yet. At the same  time, as Papikyan stated, the price policy of the company is quite  competitive. 

Within few days the Company will open the electronic sales of tickets  , and first time in Armenian air flights history the route check will  be arranged in Armenian also.  To remind,  in order to develop the  Shirak  airport in Gyumri, the Armenian government took a number of  steps. In  particular, from December 31, 2014 the airport was  released from  payment of the so-called "air tax". Since January 1,  2017, the tariff  for air navigation services has been reduced by  50%, and airline air services for airlines are free of charge.   November 21, 2016 low-cost Russian airline Pobeda (loukoster of   Aeproflot) opened ticket sales for new international flights from   Moscow's Vnukovo airport to the second largest city of Armenia   Gyumri. To recall, from the airport "Shirak" for a long time, there   were no flights at all. The implementation of the only Gyumri-Moscow   flight in 2015 from the beginning of 2016 was suspended. Airport   "Shirak" is a part of the "International Airports of Armenia" CJSC,   established by the well-known Argentine businessman of Armenian   origin Eduardo Eurnekyan. The airport was built in 1961 and is an   international airport that serves the second largest city in Armenia   - the city of Gyumri (located 5 km from Gyumri) in the Shirak region.   In February 2017, it was announced that the company managing Shirak   for the purpose of improving the airport infrastructure intends to   realize a $ 10 million investment project, $ 3 million of which will   be invested this year.
