Armavia not to fine passengers for returning tickets

To date all the Armavia Yerevan-Moscow flights have been operated despite smoke from wildfires hanging over the Russian capital, Armavia Company Director General Norayr Beluyan told
“Our planes have not made any emergency landing in other Russian cities,” he stressed. As to Yerevan-Moscow flight delays, they are reasoned by queues for landing in the Moscow airports, he stressed.
Under the mentioned circumstances, the Armavia air company decided not to fine the passenger for returning  tickets or changing the date, he added.
