Due to open skies policy, in Jan-Apr 2014 passenger traffic at Zvartnots Airport grew by 50%, CEO of Armenia International Airports Marcelo Vende told journalists on Saturday.
He said that a lot of air companies increased the frequency of their flights in all directions. As a result, ticket prices dropped. Vende expects that this year Zvartnots Airport will serve 200,000 more passengers than last year.
On Oct 23 2013 the Armenian Government approved a program to ensure the competitiveness and stability of air services in Armenia. Experts believes that Armenia should liberalize its air market so as to create new jobs, to cut prices and to make air services more comfortable.
