Tigran Avinyan: Other airlines can also receive an air tax benefit  granted to "Ryanair"

ArmInfo.Other airlines, which will serve new destinations, can also get a discount on the air duty provided by the Armenian government to the Ryanair low-cost airline.   Armenian Deputy Prime Minister Tigran Avinyan stated this in an  interview with reporters on October 21.

Commenting on the reports that the state allegedly cancels the  charges for airlines at the airport, which amount to about $ 80 per  passenger, Avinyan assured that not a penny will be paid at the  expense of taxpayers, in particular, the same Ryanair, which in three  months will start operating flights from Yerevan to large European  cities at an average ticket price of 35 euros.

, no other privileges are granted to  companies. The privilege has been established not only for Ryanair,  but also for other airlines that intend to enter the Armenian  aviation market and serve new destinations in the next 12 months,  "Avinyan explained.

When asked by journalists what profit Ryanair expects in this case,  Avinyan replied: "I am not familiar with the details of the business  program, but the whole logic of the work of low-cost airlines is that  they focus on efficiency." According to Avinyan, this contributes to  the improvement of competitiveness and the entry of new players into  the market.

Avinyan also emphasized that such a country as Armenia faces the task  of strengthening its international relations through airspace and  increasing the number of direct flights. "And the second direction  that we should develop is the stimulation of programs for domestic  air carriers, which we can talk about in 1-2 years," the Deputy Prime  Minister summed up.  As ArmInfo previously reported, Europe's largest  low-cost "Ryanai"r airline announced the launch of flights from  Yerevan and Gyumri. According to David O'Brien, Commercial Director  of Ryanair, Armenia is becoming the 43rd country in the list of  flight destinations.

He stated that the company is starting its activities in Armenia in  three new directions. In particular, direct flights to Rome and Milan  will start from Yerevan on January 14, and to Berlin from the end of  March.

The first European destination from Gyumri Shirak Airport will be  Memmingen (Germany), which will be available from the end of March  2020. It is planned that initially Ryanair flights in Armenia will be  operated twice a week.

On average per year, the company plans to serve about 130 thousand  passengers in Armenia, who, choosing Ryanair, will save a total of  about 20 million euros. In addition, according to him, the start of  the company's activities in Armenia will provide an opportunity to  create new jobs.

We also emphasize that it is possible that the government's efforts  to invite a well-known European low- cost airline to the market were  connected with the need to introduce tougher competition into the  country's aviation environment in order to reduce the general price  level in the aviation market, the high prices of which reduce the  tourist and investment attractiveness of Armenia.
