Armenian air transport regulator reported on results of its two-year activity

Armenian air transport regulator reported on results of its two-year  activity

ArmInfo. Over the past two years,  about two dozen new airlines have entered the Armenian market, the  press service of the General Department of Civil Aviation (GDCA) of  Armenia reports.

For the last two years, 12 new airlines have entered the local air  market: Armenia Aircompany, Brussels Airways, Qatar Airways, Wataniya  Airways, Germania Fluggesellschaft, Arkia Israeli Airlines, Cham  Wings, Air Cairo, Turkmenistan Airlines, Red Wings, Nordwind  Airlines, Pobeda 12 new flights to Lyon, Brussels, Kuwait, Doha,  Berlin, Prague, Tel Aviv, Damascus, Sharm El Sheikh, Ashgabat,  Frankfurt, Astana. At the same time Belavia and Czech Airlines  returned to the Armenian market.

The launch of new flights, as noted, also had a positive impact on  the performance of Armenian airports. In addition to expanding the  geography of flights, the State Administration of Civil Aviation did  work to improve the business environment and simplify administration.  The concept of free airspace was introduced, thus liberalizing the  market, and giving each airline a fifth degree of freedom of  airspace, thereby allowing airlines to carry passengers not only from  point A to point B and from point A to point C (with an intermediate  landing at point B), but also from point B to point C (A-> B-> C) and  back. With the aim of developing the Shirak airport in Gyumri and  attracting budget airlines there, the Armenian government took a  number of steps. In particular, from December 31, 2014 the airport  was exempted from paying the so-called "air tax". Since January 1,  2017, the tariff for air navigation services has been reduced by 50%,  and aviation services for airlines are free of charge.

During the reporting period, the air traffic agreement with the EU  was pre-signed, which would allow liberalizing the Armenian air  market. The document will also ensure the implementation of European  aviation standards in Armenia and will form a predictable business  environment. A draft law on introducing amendments and addenda to the  RA Law "On Aviation" has been developed, which is aimed at the  development of small aircraft.

In addition, for the first time in Armenia, training courses for  private pilots have been launched. Already in the near future, as  GDCA reports, citizens of the republic and tourists visiting the  country will also have the opportunity to travel both in Armenia and  fly out of it by helicopters.
